Addressing Surging Populism and Promoting Decolonization through Gamification
This session will present the gamification projects of two student teams from the University in Kärnten (AT) to create diversophy® games exploring two current trends: Populism, and its political rhetoric; Decolonization, providing insights to overcome the residual mindsets of both colonizers and colonized which continue to generate bias and inequities. Participants will have the opportunity to sample these games.
Dr. George Simons is a consultant, trainer, and university lecturer who has developed the diversophy® series of over 100 intercultural and social games, many available in a variety of languages (www.diversophy.com). With Amna Ben Amara and Lidia Wiśniewska he directed and coached the gaming projects of the two student groups in the spring semester 2023.
