Event description

Description

We have two Pre-Conference Sessions:

  • Design Your Own Serious Game Design Workshop

  • Learn to Lead Gamification Programs


Design Your Own Serious Game Workshop

Have you ever wanted to design your own serious game? Have you ever had an idea for a learning game that you want to take to the next level?

In this interactive workshop, you’ll have the chance to learn hands-on about both the theory and practice behind serious game design. You’ll learn about the history of serious games as well as the best practices in serious game design. You’ll also have the opportunity to use the GameStorm tool, developed by Affordance Studio, to brainstorm and design the first iteration of your serious game idea. You’ll also learn how to run a playtest to iterate on your game. By the end of the day, you’ll have a fully-functional prototype for a serious game that you can test out in a classroom or in a company.

Takeaways: Through this conference, you’ll have lived the serious game design experience from soup to nuts. Your vision of game design and learning will never be the same!

Who should attend: beginners and seasoned game design veterans alike, teachers, corporate trainers, project managers, etc.

No coding skills required.

All Prices in US Dollars.

Testimonial: Robin Sharma, UNESCO, Gaming Curriculum Developer, Avery was invited to run the GameStorm workshop in Vizag, India for the TECH2018 UNESCO-sponsored conference on serious games this past November and it was a huge success. The attendees loved it and raved about how much they learned. We have invited Avery back next year for the conference to run multiple Gamestorm workshops.

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 – 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Learn to Lead Gamification Programs:

A Certification Course


Are you ready to create and lead programs that make an impact?

This program is like no workshop you’ve attended. It is a complete immersion experience designed to help you understand what gamification means and then leave you creatively inspired. If you want to engage participants and have measurable results for your programs, this workshop is for you.

In this hands-on play day, you will learn the 5-step process of gamifying a training program. A well-designed and well-implemented game-based system promotes engagement, meaning, mastery and autonomy. Experience first-hand the deconstruction of games in gamification design to create behavior change.

Join training leads from Fortune 100 companies, federal agencies, NGOs and higher education who have completed this certification and created award-winning programs. Certification recognized and approved by HRCI, SHRM, and ATD for professional recertification credit. Also works for teachers needing CIU credit.

No coding skills are required.

All Prices in US Dollars.

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 - 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
