"Storytelling" and "gamification" are two words rapidly gaining momentum in the world of training and development. But why are they so popular and how can they be effectively utilized to improve learning? The Technology Training team at Nationwide Children's Hospital will walk you through their process for developing two classes that utilize story and game elements. By using these elements in both face-to-face and online courses, the team has seen improvement in engagement as well as performance on the job.
