Abstract

We present our experiences using LEGO Serious Play for Education and Training of (primarily) IT students and professionals. After summarizing the LEGO Serious Play technique we illustrate how we adapted its processes and workflow in order to teach requirements engineering to professionally experienced (IT) master students at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences, Hagenberg, Austria. We elaborate on our experiences using this tech-nique from a student’s as well as a teacher’s perspective, concluding with its advantages and disadvantages for training and education in an information technology en-vironment.
