Gamification in Education & Training.
Enhancing outcomes, motivation & autonomy


CATEGORY OF THEMES:

Teachers’ and trainers’ continuing professional development and career opportunities

 

WHY?

Following our highly successful study visit Academic Writing Skills (#179 May 2012), now we want to hold a meeting on Gamification in Education and Training: an innovative approach to curriculum/syllabus design and to learner’s motivation, assessment & autonomisation (at work: to employee’s commitment and productivity). Implemented in learning or work environments, gamification combats problems of low engagement & negative attitudes.


At Kazimierz Wielki University, we have used game-based learning & gamification for a few years, and we entered a networked higher-ed gamification project in 2012. We wish to share experiences with 1) like-minded staff of teaching & training institutions, 2) managers of non-educational businesses interested in gamification of job training & HR management, and 3) officials responsible for decision making.



WHAT?

Participants will learn about:


  • Courses & grading systems at Polish universities, colleges & secondary schools;
  • Effects of National Qualification Framework on course & curriculum design;
  • The idea of gamification & its base in psychology, game studies & educational theory;
  • Edu-gamification case studies & design principles;
  • Dangers & limitations of gamification.

 

HOW?

Participants will:


  • Compare courses & grading systems between educational institutions;
  • Discuss ideas & expectations with teachers, students & heads of schools;
  • Compare motivating & autonomising techniques;
  • Discuss & design gamified solutions for specific learning & work environments;
  • Prepare guidelines for educators & HR managers.

 

WHOM?

  • company training managers,
  • directors of education and vocational training institutions, centres or providers,
  • head teachers, teacher trainers,
  • heads of departments,
  • human resource managers,
  • owners/managers of SMEs,
  • pedagogical or guidance advisers,
  • representatives of education and training networks and associations,
  • representatives of educational services, labour offices or guidance centres,
  • representatives of local, regional and national authorities,
  • researchers.

 

SHORT DESCRIPTION IN THE HOST COUNTRY'S LANGUAGE

Grywalizacja jest w Polsce nowoczesnym, żeby nie powiedzieć nowatorskim, podejściem do organizacji zajęć i pracy. Tym bardziej kontrowersyjnym, że gros odpowiedzialności spoczywa na  studentach czy pracownikach. Grywalizacja w firmie czy w procesie edukacji sprawdza się w dużym stopniu właśnie dzięki autonomiczności, która pozwala na znalezienie motywacji, rywalizacji, przygotowywania produktywnych i interesujących spotkań. Stosując grywalizację otwieramy się jednocześnie na nowe i stare jak świat tendencje. Z jednej strony stosowanie nowatorskich narzędzi oraz źródeł staje się łatwiejsze. Z drugiej strony bazujemy na podstawowych zachowaniach społecznych i psychologicznych uwarunkowaniach.
