CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

In this session, we will cover an overview of what constitutes a Serious Game and what is needed to produce effective learning. This will also give insight into what a Serious Game isn’t, elaborating on misconceptions commonly seen with this learning approach. At the conclusion of this introduction, you will understand the main differences and similarities between gamification and game-based learning, know the ways they both impact the learning experience, and appreciate the true purpose and benefits of Serious Games.

Explore the science behind Serious Games and discover why they work for corporate learning. In this session, we will review game-based learning principles. We’ll also discuss the psychology behind learning with games, why games make learning more enjoyable, and how they can create better results. This session will solidify why games are becoming a major tool for learning and development and how they enhance the learning process.

Review different strategies we use to engage employees during training, which in turn produce better learning outcomes. This session will also explain how games can impact memory and how to leverage them for better knowledge retention during training. After this session, you will know design approaches that ensure knowledge is benchmarked, conveyed, and retained through the use of game elements as well as how to track Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

Learn how Training Directors and L&D Managers can recognize employees for specific training accomplishments, even on a tight budget. In this session, we will discuss the differences, similarities, and goals of intrinsic and extrinsic rewards, then see how they encourage positive behavior changes within the workplace. You will learn practical ways to reward your employees without compromising your training funds.

 

In this session, we will walk through the user experience during training. We’ll look at examples of design elements that have been used in our industry, both effectively and not so effectively, and explore different ways a goal can be accomplished with different design approaches. After this session, you will know what has hindered our ability to effectively train online as well as what has enhanced it.

This session will include a fun, hands-on brainstorming activity that will allow you to solve problems often seen in businesses. This game will expand on the information learned in the morning sessions and show how learners can be impacted through the use of player types, game mechanics, and collaboration. After this game, you will better understand the possibilities available when you use a creative and enjoyable approach to learning.

We will discuss common KPIs used to evaluate training and how to implement them into Serious Games. During this session, we will share how to effectively benchmark learning competencies and employee performance using xAPI. After this session, you will walk away knowing different ways to use Serious Games and feel confident in your ability to identify areas that are working well and those that need improvement.

This session will provide a quick hands-on demo presentation about how to build progress bars and other simple game mechanics, such as timers and counters, in Adobe Captivate. We will share tips for success, as well as challenges we have run into, from our experience in the industry. After this session, you will know different ways to integrate game mechanics into your training experiences developed with this software.
