Find yourself wondering, why all the fuss over gamification? We’re here to help you sift through the buzzwords and use gamification mechanics in a way that drives towards and never distracts from learning. In this highly interactive workshop, you’ll get the chance to play, design with, and test several game mechanics and apply them to real challenges you and your learners are facing. And, we’ll share ways that we’ve been using them in our own work at companies like Virgin Orbit and Lyft.
