Done well, game-based learning played in teams (TGBL) can enhance engagement levels, experiential learning and competitiveness with the power of social learning, team dynamics and collaboration, making for a truly memorable learning experience.

Done naively, TGBL will just entertain or worse still cause confusion and even strife among participants.

The LSG conference has invited games-based learning expert Ken Thompson to host a session on creating games-based learning for teams.

“Ken Thompson has been working in the TGBL space for the last 10 years with major organisations and will share some of the ‘lessons learned’ particularly from the perspective of nurturing high performance in teams and individuals and as a special feature of the session the participants will be able to sample a TGBL live,” explains LSG conference chair, Donald H Taylor.

Ken’s session, Creating game-based learning simulations for teams, takes place at the upcoming LSG conference at London Olympia on 14 June. LSG conference booking is free of charge for Learning Technologies 2016 conference delegates and LSG members and also includes free access to the Learning Technologies Summer Forum exhibition. The full LSG conference programme is available online.
