Dobble Debate is a set of resources that use play and humour to help people learn and talk about disabilities*. The project supports designers, educators and gamers in facilitating creative and respectful discussions by providing assets to develop games that address disability. The resources consist of A Ready-to-Go game, gameplay examples, decks of cards and avatars, which are all designed to encourage diverse perspectives. These assets were developed by co-creating with people from various communities that identify as disabled.

Workshop participants will initially be guided through the Dobble Debate game website. The session will then offer an opportunity to design gameplay using the provided cards and guiding questions, followed by group reflection and feedback. The participants will come away from this workshop with a thorough understanding of Dobble Debate’s potential and affordances for educational play.


Workshop Facilitators:

Nina Czegledy – KMDI Fellow

Lynne Heller – Adjunct Professor, OCAD University

* Dobble Debate recognizes that every individual’s life experience is different, and changes significantly based on their current environment. Therefore, we would like to refine our use of the term disability by explicitly acknowledging the D/deaf and hard of hearing, disability, differing abilities, autism, and neurodiversity plus (DDDAND+) communities. This acronym does not cover all the diverse identities usually lumped under ‘disability’; we are using it to draw attention to the variety of human experience and everyday innovation.
