Some feel that “play” is a four letter word when it comes to training and professional development. I don’t believe there’s anything wrong with using play as an engagement strategy… as long as it’s an intentional design element.
This month I was asked by the folks at TD magazine to write an article outlining some specific ways that L&D professionals can incorporate play (with a purpose) into various delivery methods – from classroom-based to webinars to performance support.
It was an honor to be asked to write for TD’s “Fundamentals” section. If you have five minutes or so and are interested in how you can incorporate more play into your next training program, give it a read… and then let me know what you think.
Do you feel “play” is appropriate for the professional training room?
