Theory vs. Practice in Implementing Successful Gamification


Theory vs. Practice in Implementing Successful Gamification

with Dr. Michael Wu

Description

Description

This abridged workshop presented several tenets of successful gamification that guard against some of the most commonly overlooked pitfalls when implementing gamification. We examined them thoroughly to understand why they are important and how they will impact your gamification initiatives. After the presentation of each tenet, the attendees had the opportunity to apply that tenet to a real problem of their choice. Upon completing this hands-on application exercise, the attendees  rotated to report their solution and finding to the entire group. Subsequently, we hosted a facilitated discussion focusing on improving upon the team’s finding while addressing any challenges or unanswered questions that might arise.

Description

Description

The gamification industry just like it’s near relative the game industry is still largely dominated by men and with that men designing for all. In this panel, we looked at designing for inclusion and what women bring to the design process and how they are maybe motivated differently in the workplace. We discussed challenging stereotypes regarding female players and how to break them. We also addressed how we can motivate more women to step into the gamification industry.
