Discussions about games and gamification often start and end with badges and leaderboards. Game Designer Matt Rhoades and Instructional Designer Robert Bell of Enspire's Ministry of Games will try to help learners move beyond those basic elements by introducing participants to the concept of game genres and talking specifically about how the game mechanics of several different genres can be applied to learning. The webinar will include demos of commercial video games, discussion of specific game mechanics within games, and even an opportunity to play a simple, Enspire-created game during the session. Webinar participants are encouraged to have a phone capable of sending text messages with them during the session.
When it comes to bridging the engagement gap, are your managers part of the problem or part of the solution? Most studies reveal that managers not only play a large role in whether or not employees are engaged, many don't seem to know what will actually engage them. This session will show you how to apply current engagement research, along with more than 30 years of research on thinking, learning and the brain, to transform your leadership development strategies and build a strong engagement advantage. By exploring the impact of thinking preferences on communication, work processes, team development and coaching efforts you’ll learn how to impact your engagement results by developing leaders who see past their own preferences to focus on what will truly engage, motivate and retain their employees.
