This hands-on workshop explores the transformative potential of Lego Serious Play (LSP) as an innovative approach to learning and teaching that transcends traditional barriers to communication and engagement, and has broad applicability from primary schools and universities through to corporate boardrooms. This workshop invites participants to experience firsthand Lego Serious Play’s transformative potential to engage learners of all ages, propelling them into the realm of curiosity-driven exploration, critical thinking and collaborative innovation. Through guided activities and reflective discussions, participants will learn how to transform learning using LSP’s theoretical foundations and practical applications. Rooted in constructivist principles and powered by the wonder of questions, LSP offers a unique inquiry-based framework to facilitate deep learning and engagement. The LSP method leverages experiential and active learning pedagogies and embodied cognition to provide deep, holistic learning experiences that empower learners to actively construct knowledge, collaborate effectively and navigate complexity with creativity and insight. LSP’s generative process offers a systematic and three-dimensional approach that facilitates deep understanding, builds connections and relationships, and uncovers insights. In the LSP method, participants are encouraged to ‘think with their hands and listen with their eyes’, leveraging the hand-mind connection to increase neural activity to achieve cognitive, emotional, and social engagement. LSP further harnesses the transformational power of play, metaphorical thinking, and collaborative storytelling to nurture dynamic and empathetic learning communities that embrace diverse perspectives and cultivate shared understanding.
