Earlier this month I ran an exercise effectively gamifying elements of UCISA’s Support Services Conference in Leeds, and there are two blogs that I’d like to do on the experience – firstly how we did it (this one – it’ll be a bit dry, but I’ll aim to stick to *what* we did rather than offer much commentary) and secondly, what I learned from it and what I’d do next time(!). 2,113 more words
