With the consistently sold-out success of our Certification Workshops
at GSummit each year, we decided to add a workshop experience to the regular conference agenda FOR ALL ATTENDEES
to participate it. We call them Hands-on Labs and they’re going to be one of the best aspects of this year’s event–guaranteed!
Each of the 90-minute Labs will offer a limited group of attendees (first come, first served) a hands-on learning experience. So far, we have 2 Labs announced, with more coming soon:
HANDS-ON LAB #1
Game the System™ – A Proven Method to Level Up Training and Development
As you play along on the Game the System™ game board, this hands-on, gamified lab takes you through the 5-step process of adding low-tech gamification to your organizations HR training and development programs. Upon completion of this lab, participants will be able to:
- Define their measurable business objectives and determine how gamification will help them to achieve their objective
- Weave a story or theme to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
- Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in their learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
- Identify the game elements (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and game mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) they will use
- Construct a consistent, attractive – even charming and captivating – cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
- Answer the question: Is it fun?
When the Game the System™ 5-step process is orchestrated effectively, learning goals are achieved with maximum effectiveness and impact. Our brains thrive on such stimulation. In fact, the Game the System™ method is learning at its best.
Topics Covered: Gamification, Employee Engagement, Human Resources (HR), Employee Training & Development
HANDS-ON LAB #2
Creating Emotional Engagement through Game Design
Facilitated by: Jeb Havens (Product Manager & Sr Game Designer, Google/YouTube) @jebhavens
This highly-interactive game design lab will challenge you to experiment with the ways that certain game mechanics can tap into a player’s emotional center, creating a strong sense of engagement. Learn basic game design fundamentals, as well as advanced techniques for building emotional investment, and immediately test them out in a series of game design exercises.
Topics Covered: Gamification, Customer Engagement, Gamified Design
These Labs are meant to enhance your experience at GSummit, as well as offer each attendee a way to learn in a hands-on environment. They’ll also be a great compliment to the 50+ speakers throughout the conference. For those of you who are interested in a more intensive workshop experience, we still have spots available for our two Gamification Certification Workshops:
