Gamification is the integration of game mechanics, or game dynamics, into a learning experience, while game-based training can be defined as a game designed for the purpose of solving a problem. However, these words are being used in parallel by the industry and it can be quite confusing. This session will focus on the clarification of gamification and game-based training. Using examples from the industry, this session will help to explain each of the learning experiences, and discuss the best practices in their development.

Triumph Group had a strategic initiative to transform their company into a learning organization but had to overcome the challenges of providing training that sticks without disrupting production. Through a blended learning initiative, Triumph University launched several Skillsoft assets to complement their live training experiences and extend learning beyond the classroom. As a solution, Triumph University launched its new Certificate Program Model in April 2012 featuring Skillport and an elearning catalog. This strategy has increased the expectation for growth and transformed the way employees learn all across the globe. Session attendees will understand the rationale for this pilot and how value can be justified in their own organizations.

Gamification is one of the hottest trends in learning and development. Is it just a buzzword or a trend as one leading expert argues, or does it offer richer, more interactive, and more effective ways to develop people? Decide for yourself after attending this session. Dr. Robert Becker will cover the why, when and how of gamification, focusing on the transformation of traditional or legacy courseware into more engaging game-based learning. You will not learn how to design video games in this session, but you will learn how to gamify your instructional design if the gamification of training is right for you.
Flipped learning—courseware and recorded content serving as the initial element of a learning experience, with live virtual sessions and social and collaborative tools supplementing and enhancing the learning experience—has the potential to increase learning effectiveness, lower operational costs, and get better retention and more effective application of the learning. The model has created tremendous buzz in the education community, but is it viable for business learning? We believe that effective use of the flipped learning model can transform business learning, improve learning outcomes, and reduce operational costs. Participants in this session will examine the flipped classroom model, learn how to build one, and hear case studies of businesses that are now delivering in this new model.
