Learning for change across diverse organisations
The line between 'learning goals' and 'business objectives' is blurring. In a complex world, learning becomes imperative to communicating and engaging with both internal and external stakeholders.

Colin Welch, Head of Production and Sophie Costin, Senior Learning Designer lead a practical, case study-led session focusing on real examples of impactful projects that use diverse game mechanics and cutting-edge learning design to engage varied audiences.

Colin said:

"We recently worked with 3M – market leaders in abrasives manufacturing and sales – and delivered a custom interactive Health and Safety game that promotes their abrasive products and demonstrates Health and Safety best practice to their customers. It has fantastic features and functionality – a game my team and I are extremely proud of. I'm looking forward to sharing our thinking!"

Sophie added:

"I'm excited to showcase a new interactive solution we've created for the University of Greenwich that helps students plan for their future careers. The platform is built for any student in secondary education and uses mixed media such as quizzes, video, and animation to explain the concepts of careers and employability."
