The Infinite Game of Education

Dr Niki Harre

Imagine if life was a game, an infinite game in which we continually changed the rules to keep our deepest values in play and ensure that everyone could take part.

In this session we will explore life through the lens of an infinite game. The object is to understand current social structures that limit progress towards human and ecological flourishing and the vital role that schools, tertiary institutes, other organisations, individuals and communities can play in creating a better world. 

This will involve:

  • Experiencing an infinite game workshop and learning how to run this workshop in your own setting
  • Learning about the core values that we all share
  • Considering the types of games played in the educational and other organisations you belong to and how these can be expanded, improved or subverted
