Have you ever been to a workshop and wondered, 'How do I keep from falling asleep?' Training programs could be so much more engaging if they leveraged an instructional game. Whether face-to-face or supported through educational technology, games allow participants to imagine themselves in a role and practice how they might transfer the knowledge learned to a new job role or responsibilities. The key is learning how to effectively design a game to ensure maximum impact. Presented in the frame work of a game, this session will break down game design into simple steps that make it easy to captivate the interest of your workshop participants. You'll learn the key benefits of game design, including targeting your audience, learning through experience, and reinforcing program content. Throughout the session, you'll have an opportunity to play the game in teams and earn points to redeemed at the end of the session for prizes.
