Day 3

11:00 am - 11:30 am EST How to Incorporate Gamification Principles into Learning Design

Gamification has come to the fore as a method of making learning more dynamic to capture the attention spans of employees and encourage not only completion of trainings, but continued education. While some may seem gamification as a tool to make learning more relaxed and less formal, gamification continues to prove a successful motivator for people needing to complete a task.

Not all learning, however, must be subjected to gamification efforts. With that said, much of the corporate learning efforts currently being undertaken could use an element of gamification to engage remote and highly stressed workforces.

In this session, speakers will focus on how to incorporate elements of gamification into any training to improve completion and retention rates, encourage continued learning and measure effectiveness of the training.

Key takeaways include:

  • Design learning modules with basic gamification principles
  • Learn what elements of gamification are most effective in driving performance
  • Understand how to measure the effectiveness of gamification on completion and information retention.

11:30 am - 12:00 pm EST Using VR/AR to Develop Remote Employees through Immersive Learning

As COVID-19 has put distance between workers and the organizations they represent, efforts to bridge the distance between them have involved an investment in technology. The same goes for learning and development efforts as employers look to reskill and upskill their people to meet the challenges that lie ahead.

In this session, we will take a deeper look at the impact virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) can have on corporate training efforts and learning retention. By placing employees in immersive virtual environments, employers can find new ways to remotely engage the distributed workforce as if they were in a classroom.

Key takeaways include:

  • Understand how to create an immersive learning experience with VR/AR
  • Examine the impact of VR/AR on learning retention
  • Engage distributed workforces with learning focused on engagement

The learning landscape is evolving with the workforce and world events. COVID-19 has forced drastic changes to how L&D teams deliver learning across the organization and at a time when workforce demographics are shifting. Digital natives with high expectations for how content is delivered are taking the place of Baby Boomers, meaning the learning ecosystem has to follow suit and evolve with the workforce.

Join learning we’ll examine what the keys to success are now, what drives successful L&D initiatives and what the priorities for every organization should be as they look toward the future.

Key takeaways include:

  • How to create a successful learning culture that drives results in the short term
  • Tools and tips for mapping out the organization’s learning ecosystem
  • Understand what priorities should be focused on for the future
