MIRROR (www.mirror-project.eu) is an FP7 IP project dedicated to reflective learning at work. Within project activities two serious games* about complex dialogues have been developed. CLinIC is a serious game focusing on difficult dialogues between nursing staff and patients, while Think better CARE is about care staff and residents. During the game, users have several options of action that will allow the assessment of different parameters ("patient/resident satisfaction", "quality of communication", "relationship with the patient/resident" and "time management") behind the screen. After playing users will have to do a self-evaluation, based on these pre-defined parameters to state how they think they have performed. Furthermore a feedback based on the same parameters comes then from the system and a graph comparing the two is displayed. Finally, in order to be able to better reflect on the differences and on the experience, users will be able to review the dialogues, where the thoughts of the counterpart are shown as well (these are not displayed while playing the game). *serious game= interactive simulation of real-world events with the look and feel of a game (can also be represented in form of a metaphor).
