Gamification For Talent Development: Key Design Principles Proven To Drive Learning Success
|Date / Time:
Gamification isn’t just about points, leaderboards, and badges. Games and gamification can be a powerful tool for organizational talent development, improving reactions and learning and transfer. In addition, HR and learning officers may seize the opportunity to gamify learning assessments so to create a more comfortable, effective, and even stealthy learning environment…employees won’t even realize they’re being assessed!
Gamification for training designers can improve learner satisfaction and learner retention, and some types of gamification can even increase knowledge and skill gains among employees.
The right gamification can be a huge asset to HR and training professionals, but the difficult part is implementing “proper design.” Your goals as the trainer, communication with the employee, and the proverbial toolkit you use will all play a part in whether your experience is a success.
Thankfully, with a few science-driven recommendations, you can be on your way to an effective learning and development program that leverages gamification. Join us for an in-depth webinar on how different organizations are using gamification as a talent development technique and how, when properly designed, it can work for your organization.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
