Keynote Presenter:

Karl M. Kapp, Ed.D., Professor of Instructional Technology, Author of The Gamification of Learning and Instruction.

What role should games, simulations and gamification play in learning design and delivery?

Games, gamification and game-based learning have entered into the vocabulary of trainers, elearning developers and instructional designers in the past few years. While the use of games for learning seems like a good match, questions arise.

  • How should games be integrated into the curriculum?
  • Can attitudes and behavior change result from playing a game?
  • What elements of games can learning designers borrow from game designers?

The answer to these questions can be found in the research on game-based learning.


Presentation Description:

This interactive presentation includes many examples of using game-based learning and gamification for performance improvement and highlights how organizations have used games to achieve learning success. And, yes, you will play a game at this presentation. Discover how research-based practices fit in with today's fast-paced need for quick, effective instruction.

In this keynote, we will discuss:

  • How to apply game-based strategies to the presentation of learning content.
  • Three principles for adding gamification and game-ideas to learning curriculums.
  • Four motivational aspects of games that improve learning recall and application.
  • Six ways gamification impacts learning design and development.

Panel Discussion and Q&A:

In addition to the keynote presentation, a panel of corporate learning leads and technology guru's will share how their organizations have used technology in creative and innovative ways. These short presentations will be followed by a Q&A forum where the panelists will exchange ideas with the audience.

  • Dan Bonham, Associate Director of Learning Innovation at Bristol-Myers Squibb
