Experiential Education through Gamification

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
The course provides innovative techniques to captivate your students and generate transfer of learning through gamification methods. Through the methods learned here the participants will be able to create dynamic lessons and engage their students in innovative ways making the lessons engaging and making sure the lesson objectives are achieved.
The objective of the course is to make education fun for the student while also creating the condition in which the learning happens seamlessly and without boredom using unique transfer of learning methodologies.

Learning outcomes:

  • Participants will demonstrate the ability to transform any lesson plan into a dynamic and fun experience while also making sure that transfer of learning is happening. They will do this by gamifying one lesson from their curriculum.
  • They will be able to educate through differentiated instruction methodologies, making sure every student has a challenge that they can overcome and learn from it. They will receive a written test in which they have homework that they need to give to their students in a differentiated way.
  • The educators will understand and be able to put into practice the latest theories in experiential education. At the end of the course they will know how to present 3 of the theories mentioned in the course.
  • Participants will demonstrate flexibility and adaptability when teaching their curriculum in order to make sure their students will have an engaging experience that they want more of. They will participate in at least 2 role-playing activities in which they show that they understood this.
  • Teachers present in the course will be able to give examples of real-life applications of the theories they’ve learned. They will have, by the end of the course, fill-in-the-blank sheets filled with such examples.
  • They will end the course with a gamified version of a class they teach, ready to be put into action.

All in all, they will have the tools to be engaging, innovative and fun while delivering educational content that doesn’t leave the mind of their students.
