    Join SEWI-ATD and Sententia Gamification for a free one hour webinar on how you can bring gamification into your training and learning programs. 

    This webinar will give you a glimpse into the Sententia Gamification Certification Level 1 Workshop SEWI-ATD will be hosting on May 3rd at MRA, The Management Association in Waukesha, WI.

    Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension into the corporate training programs you design or deliver? What would it look like to include game elements such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, and easter eggs to drive participation, engagement, retention, and to achieve a measurable ROI?

    This hands-on webinar takes you through the 5-step process of gamifying a training program. You’ll learn how to:

    • Define your measurable business objectives and determine how Gamification will help you to achieve your objectives
    • Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
    • Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
    • Identify the game elements (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and game mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) you will use
    • Construct a consistent, attractive - even charming and captivating - cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
    • Answer the question: Is it fun?

    Gamification of real-world training and development is a powerful technique which can motivate people and help generate loyalty to your organization, its products, and its message. At its core, Gamification is about finding the fun in the things that we have to do.

    When learning is fun, people remember, apply, and return to the learning.

    This webinar is led by Jonathan Peters, Ph.D. He is the Chief Motivation Officer for Sententia Gamification. He has spent over a decade studying the science and art of motivation and persuasion. As a speaker, he has helped audiences from Melbourne, Australia to Augusta, Maine more effectively communicate with their customers and team-members. With Sententia, he applies his knowledge and experience to make learning more enticing, engaging, and encouraging through gamification.

    Transferring knowledge is a core skill in talent development. But, most facilitators and instructional designers focus on what information to cover and neglect how the brain processes that information.

    This session will introduce participants to the field of cognitive-based information design, or CID. CID puts the research on human perception and cognition into action by providing a systematic way to improve visual communication, print materials, and electronic resources.

    Learning CID principles is a great way to strengthen your communication skills. Whether you are a manager making slide decks for meetings, an instructional designer building e-learning courses, or a facilitator creating handouts, CID can help you engage your audience, focus their attention, and retain what they've learned.

    This session will be led by Philip L. Ransom, Vice President of Communication Strategy for The CID Group. He became interested in CID when he realized how powerful the techniques were for his speaking and writing work, and now shares his passion and experience with audiences ranging from lawyers to health care practitioners. He works closely with Dr. Lou Tetlan, the founder of cognitive-based information design, to bring these skills to a wider audience.

    Doors will open at 8:30am for registration, check-in, and networking. The main program will begin at 9:00am and will end at 10:30am. There will be time from 10:30-11am for additional conversations and networking.

    This event supports several elements in the ATD Competency Model, including Instructional Design, Training Delivery, and Knowledge Management.

      If you've ever wondered how to increase the motivation of your learners, you can't afford to miss this session! By learning the process of motivational design known as gamification, you will be empowered to improve engagement, transfer knowledge, and create loyalty.

      This program is like no conference or workshop you’ve attended. The Sententia Level 1 Gamification Certification is a complete immersion experience designed to leave you creatively inspired and technically masterful. You will spend a day learning from the #1 rated gamification guru, Monica Cornetti, and will leave as a more effective trainer, teacher, instructional designer, or human resource professional.

      Be prepared to come and PLAY FULL OUT for the entire day to dramatically improve your learning and development results and significantly increase your credibility and influence and a professional.

      Gamification is founded in the fundamentals of human psychology and behavioral science, and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level, and triggers. Gamification is not about simply rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers. Gamification includes a robust set of game mechanics including chance, competition, collaboration, knowledge sharing, badges, points, leaderboards, status, achievement, exploration, teamwork, and so much more.

      Featured on the cover of Bloomberg Businessweek, Monica Cornetti works with individuals and organizations who want to learn how to think differently to achieve uncommon results. A gamification speaker and designer, Monica was rated #1 among the “Gamification Gurus Power 100” by RISE in 2015 and 2016, and in 2016 was also recognized as a Top 3 Finalist in the “Gamification Guru of the Year Award” by the World Gamification Congress held in Barcelona, Spain.

      Monica is the Founder and CEO of the Sententia Gamification Consortium and the author of the book Totally Awesome Training Activity Guide: Put Gamification to Work for You. Monica is hired for her skill as a gamification speaker and is considered at the top of her field in gamification design for corporate learning.

      This certification will address many of the areas in the ATD Competency model: performance improvement, instructional design, training delivery, learning technologies, evaluating learning impact, managing learning programs, and integrated talent management. Whether you are a trainer, instructional designer, manager of talent programs, or a HR professional in charge of professional development, this session will level up your skills.
