So you want to Facilitate The GPL Way?

In all the Courses We share the WHY, the WHAT and the HOW To’s of  The GAME PLAY LEARN Framework:

Design the GAME 

Let them PLAY

Watch them LEARN

REFLECT on your own Coaching methods, and we will give you Tasks to test out The GPL Way in your own Coaching Environment.

What you will learn is:

  • How to provide Dynamic Learning Environments and Engaging Experiences for your Participants..AND make Leading more enjoyable while you’re at it! There have been some wonderful stories of new-found FUN and FREEDOM, CREATIVITY and CONNECTION for Players AND Coaches through Facilitating The GPL Way.
  • How to Facilitate a group of players of any age group and any sport. The GPL Way can actually be Facilitated to lead all groups of people. The common Values and Principles can be applied across contexts.

GPL Online Courses are facilitated through a Private Facebook Group, Email and the gameplaylearn.net website.

They are the most formalised and structured Learning Opportunities where we deliberately explore and research relevant topics of GAME PLAY LEARN, then try them out and share our experiences.

Most are 3 weeks duration, just enough time to explore some of the philosophy, try it out for yourself and get to know other Facilitators on the GPL Journey.

A sample Weekly Schedule of a 3 Week Interactive Course is:

SUNDAY NIGHT GROUP LIVES: Interactive Opportunities hosted by Founder Joey Peters to introduce, discuss and reflect on the Course Topics.

TUESDAYS: An Email is sent with Reference Blog Posts, Videos and Tasks to research, watch and try out for yourself.

THURSDAY WORKSHOPS: on the private Facebook Group, Joey Peters hosts various means of workshopping: From Presentations on the Research and Discussions with Special Guests, to Bushwalking and hosting ‘Watch Parties’. It’s another Interactive Learning Opportunity!

EVERYDAY WE’RE GPLing: You’re encouraged to post your Thoughts, Sessions and GPL Experiences on the Private Facebook Group as well. The more you can contribute and engage, obviously the more you will understand the Framework, be confident to try it out and start seeing the benefits of not only seeing your Learners thriving, but enjoying the experience more yourself as well.

Each Interaction takes approximately 30-40 minutes so it’s at least a 1:30 – 2 hour undertaking each week during the course.

We’ll also include Our Introductory Game Designs and GPL Session Guide to get you started!

 

GPL Introductory Game Designs

‘Learn THE GAME, By Playing THE GAME’ These 6 Games (with Soccer as the example) make a small change to The Game but make a BIG difference to Learning. There’s no need to be overwhelmed in finding new Games to play and sessions to plan. There’s enough variation here to just use these Game for the whole season. What is your Team’s favourite Game?

This simple Session Guide will help you remember what’s important in the Session, strain with the Context for the day. Who are you with? When is the session? Why are they there? Design the GAME – What Game does your team want to play and Facilitate what the rules will be? Then it’s time to PLAY – How many Players do you have, How many teams do you need and How long will the Games go for? You can then Watch them LEARN – Observe, Reflect and explore Ideas.
