Make Your Training More Playful: Understanding Gamification

Online Workshop Part 1 of GAMIFICATION SERIES

Date: Saturday 22nd May 2021 (17:00 – 20:00 BST or 12:00 – 15:00 EDT)


Dr. Michael Sutton, Chief Gamification Officer, FUNIFICATION, USA, co-author with Kevin Allen of Emotify! The Power of the Human Element in Game-Based Learning, Serious Games and Experiential Education, a pragmatic book on the dynamics of successful Game-Based Learning experiences, and Joe Bisz, Professor of English, City University of New York, USA, co-author with Dr. Victoria Mondelli of the forthcoming book: The Allure of Play, an educator’s guide to Game-Based Learning, are offering a half-day GBL workshop through the World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD): Make Your Training More Playful: Understanding Gamification

This will be the first of two online events on the topic, starting with an introduction-level workshop of half a day (3+ hours). If you find it valuable and wish to learn more, you can register for the longer intermediate workshop, a more in-depth event outlining elements of architecture and examples of using GBL and gamification in the classroom and workplace. The longer intermediate workshop requires attending this introduction-level event as a pre-requisite.


At the Make Your Training More Playful Online Workshop you will learn:

  • Ideas for building your own fun and thought-provoking activities.
  • How to incorporate reflective exercises to better assess employee and student learning.
  • A model for how to evaluate existing games for possible adoption by your organization.
  • How the qualities of games can improve your learners’ participation, commitment, engagement, and loyalty.


Profile of target participants includes Chief Learning Officers (CLOs); Business managers, project managers, and team leads; Training and development professionals; Senior instructional designers; Human resources directors and trainers; Deans and faculty in higher education; and administrators, trainers, instructors, and staff associated with professional development.


Date: Saturday 22nd May 2021 (17:00 – 20:00 British Summer Time or 12:00 – 15:00 Eastern Daylight Time)
