Session Description:

Immersive learning through games, gamification, and simulations is being used by a variety of institutions and organizations to transform the learning experience. Information distribution as a primary outcome of training no longer meets the performance needs of the business or its employees. Training solutions should focus on critical thinking and problem-solving to improve employee performance. Games and game mechanics provide opportunities to focus on exploring and doing, versus just listening.

It can be a big leap for trainers and instructional designers to move toward using games and designing game-based learning. Join this session to explore the ways in which you can take that leap and take advantage of immersive learning solutions to transform the impact of training solutions.
