Game Changers – Soft Skills Curriculum
Did you know that you can use games to build soft skills for work? The Game Changers: Gaming Skills and the Workplace curriculum can show you how.
Games challenge us to think creatively, make decisions, solve problems, strategize, communicate and learn from our mistakes. The Game Changers: Gaming Skills and the Workplace curriculum is designed help teach a new generation of job seekers the soft skills critical to Canadian employers.
This resource includes ten modules:
- Gaming is Good (introduction) with support documents
- Conflict Resolution
- Decision Making
- Flexibility & Adaptability
- Non-verbal Communication
- Observation Skills
- Problem Solving
- Verbal Communication
- Work Ethic
Each module includes a supply list, pre-session preparation activities, optional reading and research, facilitated lessons, participatory activities, discussions and games.
The Game Changers modules can be combined to create a course or the individual modules can be delivered as needed.
