Gamification: What is Gamification at the Workplace?
Join us for a distance presentation by Karl Kapp, professor of instructional technology at Bloomsburg University and author of “The Gamification of Learning and Instruction Fieldbook: Ideas into Practice.”
You’ve heard all about gamification for learning, but how do you take the elements of gamification and make them a reality within your organization? This webinar, based on Karl Kapp’s newest book provides answers for turning ideas into reality. The webinar covers five practical elements for gamification and a step-by-step approach for implementing gamification concepts. He offers several examples, lots of tips, a couple of tricks, and a worksheet to help learning professionals put the ideas into practice and gamify their content.
Take home a five-page resource that includes planning questions and guidelines to help you determine if gamification is the right approach for your learning event.
Presentation is co-sponsored by ASTD Alaska and ASTD.
