Game Based Learning

A perennial frustration for organisations working within high hazard industries is that, despite going to great time cost and trouble to communicate important messages across the entire workforce, incidents continue to happen. Making these messages "stick" is clearly not a trivial pursuit.

Game Based Learning (GBL) provides an innovative solution to this problem. Whereas our training and education modules primarily focus on transferring complex technical knowledge and understanding to industry specialists, GBL is all about communicating simple messages to large numbers of people at all levels of an organisation in a highly memorable way.

Risktec has developed a series of games which instil a fundamental understanding of key technical safety themes at all levels of an organisation, from operations personnel to discipline engineers to senior managers and executives. Each game uses a fun, every-day analogy or metaphor for a traditionally technical subject making the training accessible to all. Through playing the game, trainees develop a memorable appreciation of how the analogy/metaphor relates to their specific roles and responsibilities. When people participate in an interactive, hands-on activity, their retention of knowledge is much better compared to simply listening or reading.  Indeed it is commonly suggested that you remember 90% of what you "do" when you simulate, model or experience a lesson. This is what GBL is all about.

Who would have thought that having fun playing a game could reduce the likelihood of a major accident? Well, GBL aims to do just that!
