Building Better Exercises through Greater Games

How do you reach your audience with cybersecurity training? Designing practical and engaging training is challenging, but instead of death by powerpoint, flying chalk, or endless lectures, how about trying to gamify your training? A well-designed training exercise or game offers a hands on experience for the participant which engages the learner in a more active learning process. This in turn leads to better retention of lessons learned and application of the skills outside of the training context.

Participants will get the opportunity to design their first game-based learning exercise and leave the workshop with their own game prototype.

This workshop is open to all CyCon attendees no matter their experience with games or exercises.
