Dr. Zac Fitz-Walter

Zac is a gamification designer, speaker and researcher who was one of the first people in the world to earn a PhD in gamification design. He has applied gamification to many different areas including training, education, health, well-being, business and HR. He’s worked with industry, government and universities, helping them to learn and implement gamification and motivation design.

We’re off to see the Wizard: How Prototyping Can Improve your Gamification Design

Prototyping is the key to successful gamification design. By creating prototypes early during the design process it can help save both time and money, but more importantly it can help maximise the fun of your design. But how do you effectively prototype gamification? In his presentation Zac will explain to you how you can create a range of prototypes from low-fi paper designs to high-fi digital interfaces (you’ll also learn about sneaky Wizard of Oz prototypes!) By the end of the presentation you’ll understand the importance of prototyping, learn how to effectively create a prototype and leave with an understanding of useful tools and processes to maximise fun.
