Gamification, warm-up games, game based learning, simulation... what are they and how to make the best of it? Trainers looking for new ways to engage the learner are moving to Game Based learning that involves audience participation. Mr Jegatheeswaran, MAPS Immediate Past President and owner of Accordia Training & Development Sdn Bhd took the audience into the adventure of converting standard training into game based learning programs.
Jegatheeswaran should know about games as his team was commissioned to motivate the Malaysian Team to SEA games ithat was held in Singapore in 2015. The Malaysian team brought back 186 medals out of the 1313 medals awarded.
It was exciting to see audience participation as he went through the various steps to this conversion to games based learning. The participants were also challenged to create new games ideas in the break out groups that was part of the program.
