Abstract [en]

It’s the schools year’s first lesson in Mystronics. All students are excited. Some have looked forward to this day, while others just need to complete the class to get onward in the system. Some dream of a career as mystronician.

A new professor have been hired for the teaching, one with highly unorthodox teaching methods. The board of professors are naturally sceptic, but secretly many professors are curious and fascinated by the new methods.

In this larp you will play student or teacher in the first Mystronics class of the year. The larp is based on research in education development and teaching strategies for students. The subject, Mystronics, is invented for the larp but lies somewhere between classic grammar and complex systems.

Genre: Mystronics class is a research based edularp with a twist of hermetic pseudo-science. Setting: It’s the first time the students will receive teaching about Mystronics. The teacher will experiment with new teaching methods. What conflicts and possibilities will arise? Participant type: For the participants the larp is meant as a fun roleplay experience, but through the larp they will learn about the education research’s view on students and teachers. Character descriptions reflect the types of students and teachers that researchers have identified.
