Join us for our March 2015 event!

Bring the learning objectives for your next performance improvement or behavior change effort and leave with a serious game design. In this serious game jam session participants will explore the major elements of serious game design (story, character, and mechanics) and create a rough plan for a serious game. Small group or individual work will be an option. Bring your laptop or tablet to create your plan for a serious game and for access to resources during the serious game jam. This session will work off of the Micro ID for Problem and Game-Based Learning session that Andy facilitated in March of 2014.

*Attendees are not required to bring a laptop or tablet to the program, however it is highly encouraged.
 
By the end of this program, participants will be able to:
  • Identify ways in which elements of serious game design can improve existing learning solutions
  • Increase the focus and achieve depth of learning by applying serious game design techniques
  • Improve performance outcomes with serious game design
