Wed 2:15 p.m.

How does the largest employer on the planet, Walmart, attract and develop a new generation of managers who have spent more time playing games than they have in the classroom? How does pharmaceutical industry leader Novartis quickly train hundreds of people on best practice production and aseptic procedures for a new leukemia treatment, where mistakes have life and death consequences? How do you train a workforce when the half-life of skills is rapidly falling? With learning games and VR experiences that offer the engagement of the Half-Life franchisee of course!

In this session you’ll go inside medical VR simulations where mistakes have life and death consequences. You’ll be able to download and play Walmart’s “”Spark City”” Sims-style game on your phone. The session will inspire with examples from industry leaders who are ushering in a new era of experiential and visceral learning. Leave the glowing desktop screen and classroom behind and step into a new world of immersive learning.
