What do we do?
Caspian Psychology develop high quality interactive games for a unique organisational learning experience. Our games are designed by Occupational Psychologists and built around clear learning objectives. The games provoke thought, conversation and debate around these objectives.
Although there is debate around the percentages, it is generally accepted that people retain more information when they experience and get actively involved in something rather than just passively hearing or seeing something (see the Cone of Experience by Edgar Dale). Our games fully engage participants in a fun activity but with rules and events that elicit the key learning objectives. We believe that this method of training will significantly enhance the amount participants retain.
How do the games work?
All games are delivered with accompanying training slides which can be tailored to suit organisational goals. The games can be delivered by internal training staff through some initial training (requirements vary per game). Games and accompanying training can also be delivered directly by Caspian Psychology and our partners.
We offer three types of games/service using a mixture of digital and non-digital methods.
- Immersive team games – this type of game typically lasts 1-2 hours and is built around specific learning outcomes (see pages 4-8).
- Short games – these games last up to 20 minutes and are ideal for starting a meeting or during an event.
- Individual Apps – these apps are aimed at supporting continual learning through games employees can play in their own time. The games can be accessed on an interactive screen or online.
We currently have three games developed and will be adding new games to our repetoire over the next year. Please sign up to our mailing list below to recieve updates on our games. Alternatively, we can develop bespoke games on request. This might also involve helping you use the principles of gamification with the aim of encouraging certain behaviours or tasks.

Fill It Up:
A practical activity where two teams work together to complete a task that involves processing 8 cylinders of gas. During this activity the teams will analyse the process using bow-tie analysis and consider how human factors issues will be managed during the process. The decisions they make will impact what occurs during the task and they will have to resolve the issues that occur. The team to process the 8 cylinders in the quickest time wins! Find out more here.
