Lectures & workshops

For many years I teach Interaction design to larger groups and individuals. At this moment I am a teacher at two education centers: Lectric and Competence Factory for 2 or 4-day courses. In the future I will give those courses online as well.

Workshops 2012-2013:

Hubud, Ubud, Bali (Indonesia)
Workshop about how to build a business game in 7 steps.

Games for heritage conference, Utrecht (The Netherlands)
Workshop role-playing game about game best practises for heritage.

Regional Techno Center Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

The Regional Techno Center Amsterdam (RTCA) is aimed at the technology sector, and acts as an intermediary between technical vocational training institutes, the business community and the government. I presented a number of workshops to RTCA instructors concerning the conceptualizing and implementation of designing processes.

Salon de museologie Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

Initiator and moderator of a ‘socially relevant brainstorming game’. National heritage organizations need to better cooperate with (social/public) institutes. This will provide them with a social platform (which does not necessarily always need to make use of the latest digital technologies). Being supported by all of society in this way, rather than primarily by the organization itself, their collections will increase in meaning and sustainability. Stating the truth regarding our heritage, and attributing meaning to it, will then be done by the whole of our society.

ICT-ster Amsterdam(The Netherlands)

An event called “ICT-ster” took place on the initiative of technology professionals that wished to kindle enthusiasm in young women for careers in ICT and new media. Together with Carla Hoekendijk, I presented a workshop on games in the cultural sector, thus offering an example of ways in which women are able to successfully participate in this specific sector.
