UNITAR Participates in Gamification for Development MOOC

15 March 2016, Geneva, Switzerland – UNITAR is proud to announce that it will participate in the development and facilitation of the Gamification for Development MOOC that will be held from 11 April to 27 May 2016

Although exhaustive literature is available on gamification and user engagement, the Game4Dev MOOC intends to provide learning and development professionals with a knowledge sharing platform where resources on the use of gamification for development are compiled and to engage them through guided discussions and participatory activities focusing on the potential of gamification for their own context.

If your organization or institution is interested in exploring the added value of gamification then joining this MOOC might be an excellent opportunity to transform your ideas into practice. 

Signing up is FREE.

UNITAR will work alongside experts from ITCILO, CINTERFOR, GIZ among others. However, the crucial part of the MOOC is the involvement of participants by providing the opportunity to share their own resources and bring in individual expertise and experience. The mission and overall goal of the course is to promote and stimulate a vibrant community for quality in digital learning that will remain functioning after the MOOC. 

The MOOC will be held in English, and is open to a broad target group: learning and development professionals, technical specialists involved in training and facilitation, professionals of organizational learning and change, e-Learning specialists and instructional designers.

Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of selected learning activities, provided he/she has actively and collaboratively participated in the MOOC.
