In this session, award-winning instructional designer Scott Provence discusses the surprising studies and research that shows how we actually learn more when we get things wrong.
Gamification is a hot concept in the e-learning world. We know we have to engage and keep learners learning. We know people struggle to find time to take classes, go to conferences, and generally engage in professional development. And we know that easily more than half of the workforce was raised in a gaming culture. So it seems like gamification is a one-size-fits-all solution.
But hold on...let's not make that leap just yet. Just because it's a hot concept doesn't mean it's the right concept for all situations. We'll ask a few simple questions to help determine if gamification is the perfect solution. And share tips to meet your learning goals if it is
When it comes to creating gamified or game-based learning experiences, most practitioners throw game mechanics at a program without a methodology or rational strategy – and hope it will work. They assume that what is fun for them will be fun for their participants. The result is a hit-or-miss mashup and a messy learner experience. When budgets and time are in short supply, organizations can no longer afford such an approach.
This webinar outlines a practical approach to determining which game mechanics will motivate a targeted audience. No more one-size-fits-all training programs; your learners are demanding more… and they deserve it!
