P08 Getting Started with Gamification
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, October 23
The term “gamification” is often misunderstood, but it doesn’t have to be. Gamification is simply about taking the psychology and motivation of games—fun, challenge, achievement—and applying them to real-world, non-game situations. Gamification is not just about the technology that enables it. Because successful gamification is more about psychology than technology, you must learn to add the right mix of mechanics, dynamics, and aesthetics to achieve a successful outcome.
In this hands-on and interactive workshop, you will learn a five-step process for adding meaningful gamification to a learning or talent development program. You’ll experience firsthand how gamification design can create change within organizations, and you’ll use an L&D case study, tactical templates, and gamification strategy playing cards as you gather data and participate in creative, problem-solving, and assessment activities. By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a stronger understanding of how to increase learning and engagement through key concepts found in game design and behavioral psychology.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to identify your target audience and define how gamification can help you achieve measurable business objectives
- How to frame and wrap your quest in a spellbinding story to create a narrative thread that pulls through the entire program
- How to use the right mix of ingredients in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill, rather than merely receiving and memorizing information
- How to determine which game elements you will use, and how to implement game mechanics to motivate your players
Novice to intermediate designers, developers, and managers.
