Using Gamification, Threaded Microlearning And Measurement To Get From Learning To Performance
The number one focus in the learning field is workplace performance. And yet, too often, we default to old models of learning—even when we’re using the latest technologies. Even worse, we jump on the bandwagon of a new learning tool without aligning it to proven research-based learning methods.
In this session, noted research-to-practice expert, Will Thalheimer of Work-Learning Research will explore the power of three learning methods to help learners transfer what they’ve learned to their jobs—gamification, threaded microlearning and measurement. Joining him, Roni Floman of GamEffective will highlight these methods using real-world examples.
In this session, you won’t hear that today’s learners have the attention span of a goldfish, that training is dead, or that neuro-gamification is the future. LOL. Instead, the speakers will provide practical research-based ideas that you can utilize to energize your learning and support your employees in maximizing their on-the-job performance.
You’ll learn specifically how gamification can be performance-focused on real-world KPI’s—above and beyond learning. You will see how learning can be augmented with threaded microlearning nuggets (both informational and task-oriented). You’ll also see how improved learner feedback questions can focus on performance and create continuous cycles of improvement.
