Lunchtime Talk: Kerstin Junge and David Drabble 27th July 2016.

Social Seducement is a project funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme (under GA 2014-1-UK01-KA200-001830). Against the background of growing EU and UK interest in the social economy, the project aims to develop a serious online role play game that can be used to train people who are facing disadvantages in the labour market in entrepreneurial thinking and doing. Bringing together the combined expertise of six partners from five EU member states (UK, Sweden, Belgium, Italy and Spain) under the overall coordination of the Tavistock Institute, the project is in the process of developing a truly blended model of learning. In this lunchtime talk we will share some learning about the process for developing this game to date, reflect on evaluation needs and share an early demo of the game.

Dr Kerstin Junge is a Principal Researcher and Consultant at the TIHR. Her work focuses on process and outcome evaluations of complex and innovative projects and programmes. It often aims to both define and assess outcomes as well as to generate learning for funders and beneficiaries to support improvement and scaling.

David Drabble is a Researcher/Consultant at the Tavistock Institute who leads the Strategic Initiative on Digital Engagement. An employee of seven years, David has research interests in online group interaction, the mediating influence of technology on empathy, and social-technical systems.
