Serious Games PDN: Co-sponsored with CC-ATD
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for this Co-Sponsored Event with CC-ATD (Chicago Chapter of Association for Talent Development, formerly CC-ASTD).
This PDN (Professional Development Network) will explore the latest learning and assessment modalities that serious games brings to adult learning. Each meeting will showcase an expert in game development or game leaning theory.
Much has disrupted or fragmented the traditional face-to-face process of building and sustaining learning relationships. Technology is providing alternative methods. The interface between cognitive science and the process of applying game thinking and game-techniques (gamification) in the service of social learning—of improving social interactions across a range of personal and professional settings is gaining tremendous traction in corporate settings. Tools and technologies to enhance interpersonal effectiveness (including cognitive task simulations and virtual environments for mastery learning) are being created and implemented by more corporate learning programs. With advances in information technology, Benjamin Bloom’s work on Mastery Learning that in 1968 was too expensive and time consuming to implement are now a technological reality.
All are welcome. You do not need to be a member of CC-ATD to attend.
