Start Thinking Like a Game Designer: An Interactive Learning Experience

Thursday, January 25, 2018

In games, players immediately take action, make meaningful decisions, and volunteer to spend more and more time finding treasures or defeating villains. Meanwhile, many corporate e-learning experiences are less than engaging. What instructional designers need to do is steal ideas, techniques, and methodologies from game designers and incorporate those ideas into our instructional design. This session will provide a model that can be followed by instructional designers as well as research-based recommendations for helping instructional designers think more like game designers. The result will be interactive and engaging instruction. This will be an intermediate-level session, and some knowledge of instructional design will be helpful. Also, bring your smartphone and devices, as you will be interacting with the content and voting on answer choices while this interactive adventure unfolds. This session was recorded at the ATD 2018 TechKnowledge conference in San Jose, California.
