The Expology Clinic

skrevet av Ingrid E. Handeland — 2017-10-24

With over 20 years experience in designing social learning experiences, Expology is has been invited to run their new 'Expology Clinic' as part of NPU 2017.

The clinic is structured to give an in-depth exploration of the challenges and solutions available to you as visitor experience providers.

The session will actively involve all participants. Expology will demonstrate how the studio has achieved fantastic results with youth engagement in the past.

How does it work? We will explore the common challenges that organizations experience in dealing with young audiences. These challenges will then be put under the microscope, assessed, analyzed - revealing the strategy tools that have worked so well for Expology and their clients in the past. 

Feel free to submit your Youth Engagement challenge by the 27th of Oct to The challenge can be in relation to a past project, a dream project or a project yet to be conceived.

 Your challenge will be in the trusted hands of the Expology team: Gordon Ryan (Managing Director & Senior Designer) | Morton Torgersen (Design Lead) | Michel de Brisis (Technology Lead) | Ellen Lyse Einarsen (Head of Operations).
