3 Game Design Practices to Boost Learner Engagement

Presented by: Marie-Jo Leroux

ATD FWMC invites you to a live session we’re hosting to help you hone your gamification skills. In 1 hour you’ll gain strategies for improving learner engagement.

Games effortlessly transform newbie players into empowered experts. They motivate players to persevere in the face of adversity, to upskill and overcome difficult challenges. Meanwhile, the player hardly notices all the effort, focus and attention they invest into building that skill.

How do games do that? And how can you apply some of that magic to your training?

In this talk, Marie-Jo will reveal the hidden ingredients that make games amazing teachers, and how you can apply these principles to your work, help learners work towards relevant goals and win at the training game.

About our Presenter

After a 10-year career as a corporate trainer and ID, Marie-Jo developed videogames for groups like Marvel, Disney, Sega and Ubisoft. Her credits include Watch Dogs, Iron Man, Rainbow Six, Happy Feet, Avatar and Driver: San Francisco.

In 2014 she merged the worlds of training and games and founded 42 Comets, a studio specialized in gamified e-learning. They serve learners in the fields of medical simulation, manufacturing, safety compliance among others.

Marie-Jo now teaches instructional designers how to gamify their training through her program, the Effective Gamification Framework, and on her YouTube channel.
