Mar 11, 2021

10:30am – 11:30am CT

***To ensure an engaging and productive learning experience, attendance will be capped at 100 people. The Zoom link will be available on this page 5 minutes before the session start time. Please note, clicking the “Register” button does NOT guarantee access, as attendees will be let in from the waiting room on a first come, first served basis.*** 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, we’ll review several popular game mechanics, and you’ll get the chance to play, design with, and apply them to real challenges your adult learners are facing. Throughout, we’ll share examples from industry and higher ed.
