LEAP multiplier event took place in Tallinn University on 23rd of May 2018. The scene of Mare building Atrium is a big open area with some leisure area, so the atmosphere was informal and quests could go around and play the games all the event long. The games were downloaded to big portable displays. Altogether there were 5 big screens on two of them the 5S game was opened, one in pharmacy and the other computer scenario. On the other three the Scrum game was playing, each device in different role. As the Technical Debt game is for Android devices, there was a link to the download site on the main screen.
Triinu Jesmin introduced LEAP project and our acomplishments and contacts. The keynote Kadri-Liis Kusmin is a software developer at Proekspert and a PhD student in Tallinn University. Her work is focused on the social paradigm shift brought about by Industry 4.0. She is passionate about any topic that concerns improving human life through the application of IT. She also participated as expert in the LEAP project and gave a very inspiring talk about agile.
After the keynote speak everybody was encouraged to try out the games. Most people tried them out on their own but also a workshop type of introduction to all games and scenarios was given by Triinu.
In the audience were a lot of Tallinn University key personel. For example prof Katrin Niglas who is the vice rector of research, prof Peeter Normak the director of School of Digital Technologies, Kerli Onno from communication and Andrus Rinde lecturer of informatics. Also a lot of people form the School of Educational Sciences were present. Few people form industry were also present, for example Priit Kübar from Baltic Computer Systems who teach agile methods to a wide variety of people.
All participants received a sustainable water bottle as a gift, a certificate for attendance and a questionnaire for feedback. The examples can be seen in the Dropbox folder.
The feedback was very good, only few marks of 4 and non of below. The few comments added were: the room was too big that the crowd fell apart and people hid away and felt like there is only few people, and the fact that a lot of students missed this great opportunity.
