Robert Bell, senior instructional designer at Enspire Learning, will be speaking at ASTD TechKnowledge 2013 this week in San Jose. The session titled “Designing Serious Games: Showcasing ConAgra Foods’ “Managing Talent for Results”” will explore the custom serious game developed for ConAgra Foods by Enspire.
Robert’s case study session will showcase the design of ConAgra Foods’ “Managing Talent for Results,” a serious game that incorporates digital and analog game elements to provide a capstone learning experience that addresses the challenges of talent management faced by ConAgra Foods’ managers. This session will provide more than a recounting of the project’s design process. In order to deepen your understanding, you and a team of fellow participants will be expected to create a basic paper game prototype that addresses one or more instructional design challenges encountered in this project. You will present your design to the group and compare it to the final game designed for ConAgra, leading to a broader discussion around key challenges in serious game design and how to develop serious games for human resources training which serve all budgets and timeframes.
