    Gamification is one of the most overused buzz-words in the L&D market today. Learn proven techniques, dos and don’ts from a proven leader in gamification: Trivie, Inc. the former #1 trivia game in the app store.

    ATD Competency Model - Area of Expertise This Session Supports:  Performance Improvement, Learning Technologies, Evaluating Learning Impact, Managing Learning Programs, Knowledge Management


    Speaker:   Lindsey Putterman is the Sales Director at Trivie, Inc. Trivie is focussed on two key interconnected business issues. We help employees remember training, and we give companies unprecedented insight into their training effectiveness. In doing so, we help companies better engage their employees to learn and retain information better, making smarter companies that have higher revenue, more efficient training organizations, and superior employee satisfaction. Established by nearly 100 years of research, retrieval practice is a simple learning technique that is easy to implement, with lasting results. It means exactly what it is. Practicing retrieval of learning (or training) from your memory. Through this act of retrieval, or micro-tests, our memory is strengthened, and forgetting is less likely to occur. Retrieval practice is a proven and powerful strategy for improving training performance without more money, class, or training time.

     Retrieval practice encourages flexible understanding, improving higher order thinking skills and transfer of knowledge so employees can do their job better. When adding retrieval practice to a training program, the practice should be spaced, interleaved, and varied. By re-introducing a concept based upon earlier training, but in a slightly different way, fortifies the ability to recall knowledge and put into action. 

    With Trivie, trivia games are spaced at certain intervals based upon topics and concepts that have been taught. The spacing is recommended at 3, 5, 10, 21 days post-training, and each quiz takes no more than 8 minutes. For more information, please visit their website http://trivie.com/

    Topic:  Without question, rethinking performance management is at the top of many executive and HR teams’ agendas. Many companies have watched as cutting-edge employers have eliminated performance ratings for employees and advocated more frequent performance feedback. Taking a step back from the hype, Dr. Michael J Sullivan will explore this debate through case study examples and from an unique research-based organizational behavioral perspective on motivation, engagement and performance.

    The audience will leave with:

    • Insight into debate over the new performance management revolution

    Topic:   Creativity is the ability to imagine fresh ideas and possibilities. In order to open our minds to unleashing these ideas we must remain curious. Once we have ideas we need to develop the courage to take the steps required to implement the ideas.

    Learner Objectives:
    • Increase participants’ understanding of curiosity and creativity and recognize their abilities
