Gamification

Experience an easy, participant-centered approach to adding game elements to your classroom and online learning.

In this workshop, BPG consultants model how games have the power to add to training without distracting. You’ll see how games make learning more fun, impactful, and can help increase retention. You’ll also discover how elements like badging and rewards dramatically increase engagement (hint: airlines and credit cards already do it!).

In two days, you’ll grasp a framework to create your own games that promote friendly competition, recognize achievement, and reward learning and behavior change. From no-tech to low-tech, you will have the tools you need to add variety to your training immediately without expensive equipment or software.

Takeaways from this workshop include:

  • Basics of gamification made easy, and a repeatable process to create your own games
  • When to use or lose gamification
  • What, why, and how behind gamification in the classroom
  • 5 learner-centered engagement techniques
  • How to apply game elements even without playing games
  • Brain-science behind spaced repetition and repeated retrieval to increase retention
  • Design fundamentals of gamification
  • Learner motivations and strategies to tap into each one
  • Methods to debrief, add variation and evaluate training games
  • Design an original game to use with your own content
