Bringing Boring Concepts to Life for Millennials Through Gamification and Microlearning (SU215)
Speaker: Kati Ryan
It's official: Millennials have surpassed the Baby Boomers as the largest living population in the United States. The good news? Millennials learn in a diverse and collaborative way that tends to spread across most generational neutral learning styles. As they increasingly enter and take over the workforce, it is up to instructors to adapt their way of training and capture Millennials' attention to bring traditional, boring instructional concepts to life. During this session, you will learn about the Millennial way of thinking and solid approaches to designing a training curriculum. Concepts implemented from this session will increase retention by using modern gamification aligned with learning objectives, diversify and keep learning fun through microlearning chunks, and connect employees through collaborative learning design.
