“Gamification in Business”
Alysse Morton, Professor of Management at Westminster College’s Bill & Vieve Gore School of Business has used games in her classes for the past 20 years. She will discuss how a variety of games are used with her operations management courses (both undergraduate and MBA). She will discuss three different lean processes games she has used including one where a sustainable version of the game was created to reduce waste. Additionally, she will discuss the use of an online Theory of Constraints (TOC) simulation (based on concepts from The Goal by Goldratt and Cox) and a popular operations game developed at MIT, The Beer Game. Finally, Alysse will discuss the plans for a new business integrative core class that will use the LINKS Enterprise Management [Enriched Edition] simulation tool.

“Improved student learning behaviors through gamified course design”
The sage wisdom of Mary Poppins gave us the following advice: “Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” What is the educational sugar that makes learning fun and enjoyable? What is the purpose of fun? How can we design fun into our courses? Even with a limited budget of resources and time there are strategies you can apply as instructional designers. In this presentation, we will discuss a variety of game design principles and aspects that can improve student learning behaviors and attitudes today.
