Best Practices for Implementing Gamification
Presented by: Jonathan Peters, PhD and Monica Cornetti
Problem: Gamification is an important and powerful strategy for influencing and motivating people. Unfortunately, many people think that gamification means adding a game to their learning program or making a video game.
Because of this confusion, combined with a lack of real-life case studies, most L&D professionals do not understand how to deconstruct games to effectively drive the learning and behavior they want and need.
Solution: Using case studies from real-life programs from organizations such as Brown University, Amazon.com, Wyndham Properties, and ATB Financial, you will learn how and why Gamification works, in what context it is most effective, and the limits of employee engagement in corporate learning and talent development. Come prepared to engage with the four degrees of implementation, and experience the good, the bad, and the ugly of gamification strategy design.
