What better time of year could there be to have a Gamification event than the Winter Holidays? Games and gifts are everywhere – and the Santa Claus of Gamification is coming to Boston!

ATD Greater Boston is thrilled to welcome Karl Kapp, Ed.D to Boston for his timely presentation of Beyond Gamification: Thinking Like a Game Designer! And for the icing on the cake, Dr. Kapp will also facilitate a 1-day workshop, Play to Learn: Creating Impactful Learning Games, the following day.

In this interactive session, you will learn to:

  • Convert content into a game-like delivery using several different game dynamics and mechanics.
  • Think like a game designer and implement a model for applying the concepts.
  • Create more engaging and interesting interactions with learners to achieve the desired outcomes

Hope you can join us to discover how to tap into game thinking to take your online or face-to-face training delivery to the next level!
