SELT205 Beyond Buzzwords: Boosting Performance Using Microlearning and Gamification
2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Thursday, October 25
Expo Hall: eLearning Tools Stage
Traditional eLearning receives very little employee attention. In fact, extremely low (2 – 20 percent) completion rates for ongoing training are common in the industry. Learners often dislike eLearning and avoid it as much as they can. It is clear that a fundamental shift in eLearning is needed to increase employee engagement, enhance learning, and improve performance.
In this session, you will experience two of the fastest-growing trends increasing the effectiveness of eLearning: microlearning and gamification. Both concepts are often misused and do not produce the desired outcomes. However, you will learn a six-factor model of eLearning engagement and how to implement it in your organization to produce real performance improvement. You will see the results that other companies have achieved using this approach.
In this session, you will learn:
- What microlearning and gamification really are (hint: probably not what you think)
- What makes the difference between “cute” and “effective” when it comes to eLearning
- How to link learning and performance in a way that produces measurable business results
- Six specific steps you can take in your organization right now to start implementing microlearning and gamification
Novice to advanced designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
