Play to Learn

Creating Impactful Learning Games: A Hands-on Workshop with Karl Kapp, Ed.D

       

                                             Thursday, December 7, 2017 from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Babson Executive Conference Center

Babson College

231 Forest Street

This workshop bridges the gap between instructional design and game design. It is designed to grow your game literacy and strengthen crucial game design skills.

In this hands-on workshop, we will examine examples of in-person and online games. (Yes, you will be playing games, learning games, and working with entertainment focused games!) You will design a paper prototype of a game and walk through the nine steps of the instructional game design process -- from evaluating games to determining why they work to creating your own interactive learning game prototype.

The Play to Learn workshop will show you how to:

* Evaluate games to determine what elements contribute to learning.

* Apply agile development techniques to create engaging, learning focused games

* Transform content into a learning game.

If you’re serious about gamification (!), this workshop is for you!

The cost of this workshop is $495 for non-members of ATD Greater Boston and $395 for members. Workshop fee includes coffee throughout the day, a full lunch, and break snacks.

Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deal:  Register for this Play to Learn workshop between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and you'll be enrolled in the December 6th monthly learning event for FREE!
