Webinar Recording Details


Gamification, Microlearning and digital motivation are the hottest topics in learning, but they require good design, especially if repetition is to be implemented. The good news is that new tools are available that enable the flexibility to implement gamification and microlearning in ways that align with scientific research on learning—including in mobile-learning applications. 

In this special webinar, Dr. Will Thalheimer of Work-Learning Research, noted research-to-practice expert and author of the book Performance-Focused Smile Sheets, will describe three of the most important findings from the science of learning and Roni Floman of GamEffective will demonstrate practical ways that these proven learning factors can be utilized through gamification and microlearning. 

Dr. Thalheimer will challenge us with fun and engaging real-world scenarios before he reveals the research to bring clarity to the learning-design issues involved. Ms. Floman will share examples of how to implement these time-tested principles using today’s most innovative technologies. This webinar is a great way to start the year—with the best in research-based practice applied to today’s most innovative learning technologies.
