We hope you were able to attend our presentation Need Training Spice? Games are the Hot Sauce to Engage Remote Learners! by our own Stephen Baer
Is your training content complicated? Do your employees complain about being overwhelmed with training or even worse, not show up? Then it’s time to ditch the PowerPoints and training manuals and start infusing gamification into your training. Games add spice to just about any training material and make it more digestible and much more fun. When employed correctly, games can be highly effective in engaging your learners, keeping their attention, and motivating them to perform. Feeling like a “deer in headlights” when it comes to starting a game-based learning strategy? Don’t worry, it’s much easier than you think.
In this session, we learned:
- Why games are the spice you need to make your training more fun and engaging, virtually (and eventually back in the classroom)
- How to use Bloom’s Taxonomy as a roadmap to ensure your game-based learning strategy is effective
- How to select the “just-right” game to ensure you are training to your desired learning outcomes
- How to use rich data and analytics to see learning gaps and measure the ROI of your training
Speakers: Stephen Baer, The Game Agency; Chris Willis, eLearning Brothers
Confession time: have you ever added a gamified quiz to an otherwise dull eLearning course and called it a day? We understand—sometimes that’s all your time or budget will allow. But there are so many better ways to use learning games to meet performance objectives. In this session, Stephen Baer of The Game Agency joins Chris Willis of eLearning Brothers to show you examples of how to use learning games to meet workplace performance outcomes. You’ll see 5 easily customizable games that align with different performance goals and how you can implement them in your next training project.
