Since 2006, some researchers at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI, Lugano, Switzerland) have been interested in the use of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, in short LSP, is a creative method invented at the end of the 1990s, which fosters creative thinking and innovation through the uses of the famous colorful bricks (for more details on LSP you can visit its official website: www.seriousplay.com).
Aim of this website is to summarize all activities done at USI related to LSP. In particular, we developed two applications of the LSP method, which are:
- URL (User Requirements with Lego): it is a methodology developed by webatelier.net and NewMinE Lab, which helps to elicit user requirements for online communication applications. The URL methodology, its advantages and limitations as well as all phases of an URL workshop are described in detail in the following manual: www.webatelier.net/url-user-requirements-with-lego
- LLED (LEGO Learning Experience Design): it is a methodology under development at eLab and NewMinE Lab, which helps in instructional design. LLED is meant to allow teams to design learning experiences creatively and collaboratively, involving all the stakeholders of the project (co-design / participatory design).
