Who this event is for

  • Everyone




This workshop will introduce attendees to peeragogy: an interconnected collection of techniques for peer learning and peer production. The learning mind-set and strategies we are uncovering can be applied by students, teachers, groups of friends, communities of practice, hackerspaces, organizations, wikis, and/or networked collaborations across an entire society!

In this workshop, we put peeragogy into action as we break into small groups and play ‘Flaws of the Smart City’, a futures studies game that imagines scenarios for the evolution of urban environments. After playing, each group will do a Project Action Review to reflect on lessons learned. Subsequently, the groups will present their PARs to the wider audience so everyone can learn from their experience and extract patterns. Finally, all attendees will "hive edit" a 500 to 1,000 word writeup of the workshop that will be included in the upcoming fourth edition of the Peeragogy Handbook.
