LEGO Serious Play

29 Sep 2021

A small group of SBE faculty staff and the University Library received a hands-on introduction in LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® by Professor John Parkinson (FASoS).

Building ideas

All workshop participants started off excited to experience hands on what Lego Serious Play (LSP) is all about. Soon however, they were building their ideas and sharing the story behind each model.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method developed by the LEGO Groups helps unleash hidden creativity, sharing ideas and explore concepts. The constructive technique helps to overcome boundaries of more conventional methods of presenting and discussing ideas. It is both applicable in research and education. Some great examples are described in Professor John Parkinson’s inspiring blogs (click the images below).

Note: this activity took place in the Library Makerspace; a unique, collaborative learning space that is open to everyone. It is a multipurpose flexible space for students and staff to study, to join or organise workshops and tutorials and to collaborate on projects, generate ideas and content, and to develop 21st century labour market skills.

At the Makerspace we organise many creative workshops and activities. Think about workshops focussing on digital skills, activities on sustainability, well-being and information literacy. There is something for everyone!
