The Masie Center has just announced a new, hands-on learning exploration of “Gamification & Learning” with Elliott Masie, taking place May 4-6, 2015 at The Masie Center in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Is there a role for learning activities – eLearning, simulations, face-to-face classroom sessions, etc. – that have “Gaming” elements? Would employees be motivated to take a course and also compete for a “top skills” prize? Might Gamification be used by an employer as an engagement and retention tool?
What is Gamification & Learning? The use of game design, game mechanics, competition, badging, and recognition applied to non-game activities to engage and motivate the learning process. Gamification is one of the top 3 innovations being considered, pitched and talked about in the learning industry in 2015.

“The Gamification & Learning LAB is a great opportunity to explore, experience and even challenge the roles that learner engagement, competition, badging and game design can play in workplace learning. This is a field in its early stages – with promise, innovation and also hype. I am deeply excited to bring together a small group of learning colleagues to creatively, critically and collectively explore Gamification & Learning.”
The Lab will explore every dimension of Gamification & Learning, using a vendor-neutral and evidence-based approach. Elliott will interview key innovators in the Gamification field, interact with CLOs and Academics who are experimenting with Gamification & Learning, and also engage in a real-time video focus group with employees in major corporations to gauge the “usability” of Gamification & Learning.
