What can battle the dark shadow of disengaged learners? The light of learning games! 

Combining play with learning creates a more engaging—and effective--learning experience. Game-based learning can meet most business needs, most audiences, and even modest budgets. Want to see how?

Join us on a quest to practice a game-based approach to the learning needs you’re trying to solve. It’s your chance to work in a facilitated, small group of peers. Together, you’ll experiment with game elements that support your learning objectives. For example, you might design game elements for: 

  • Collaborative group activities

  • Personalized eLearning 

  • Immersive scenario challenges


Registration includes both 90-minute sessions, along with summary notes and resources. 

  • Session 1 (May 15th) = Break into small, facilitated groups to analyze what makes an effective game and to use those principles in a design of your own game. 

  • Session 2 (May 22nd) = Follow our framework to plan a game design and then share it with the other groups. 


  • Guidance from our experienced facilitators
  • New insights from new professional friends
  • Smiles and surprises 
  • Informational resources 
  • Practical examples
  • Workspace to collaborate on mini projects

Don’t miss this unique chance to take your learning design to the next level!

Note: This quest is eligible for Continuing Education credits toward APTD or CPTD certification.

Target Audience: 

  • All L & D Professionals
