Introduction to gamification in learning and development



Want to engage your learners with game-concepts, but aren't sure where to start? Start here...

Gamification is the application of game mechanics into non-game environments to improve the user experience and engagement. It's been around for decades in the form of sales contests, loyalty programs and tiered VIP programs - but in training and education, the focus is on sparking internal motivators, not just providing external ones.

Elements such as celebrating achievements, rewarding participation and introducing new content and challenges that are relevant and achievable can build learners' confidence and desire to progress. This session will provide an overview of gamification techniques to increase learner motivation and retention.

 

The session covers:

  • Overview of what is gamification and why it is important 
  • How gamification can be used to motivate learners 
  • Examples of gamification
