ATDps: May 2022 Virtual Member Event

In games, players take immediate actions, elicit meaningful decisions & volunteer to spend more and more time finding treasures, defeating villains, or getting game characters to work. Meanwhile, many corporate learning experiences are less than engaging. The learners are reading objectives, listening to talking-head videos, or skimming introductory text. Instead, as instructional designers we need to steal ideas, techniques, and methodologies from game designers and incorporate them into our designs. 


All games are good learning engines, and game based learning is the process & practice of learning using games (from the learner's point of view) while gamification is the application of game mechanics in a non-game context to promote specific desired behaviors & drive learning outcomes. Come to this session to learn more about:


  • The difference between gamification & all the other facets (game based learning - game based pedagogy - serious games - games - games for learning)

  • The MDA framework 

  • Examples of mechanics that can be used in learning design

  • The paradox of decision & choice in game design 

  • Practical game examples
