Product Description

The best way to learn is by doing. That's the secret behind the use of games and activities in learning. And far from being "child's play," games and activities can involve adults in learning like no other instructional design tool.

There are plenty of generic "game books" on the market intended for training and adult learning. However, This 400+ page book goes one step further: it actually shows facilitators how to design more than thirty different kinds of games - games that fit the circumstances perfectly and that can be designed in mere minutes.
