Keeping a Learning Game Show Fresh

One of the most frequent questions we get from trainers is, "Sure, a game show is fun the first time…but what about the next time, and the time after that?"

Here are the top 5 ways to keep your game show fresh and engaging for your trainees

The Top 5 Question Writing Mistakes

The questions in a game show are incredibly important for obvious reasons; they convey the training content and they affect the flow and effectiveness of the game show. Written incorrectly, questions can be confusing and detract from the game show as a whole

Which Game Shows Should you use for Which Topics?

Trainers who use LearningWare's game shows are in absolutely every industry and institution. We've had trainers use game shows for training topics like: new product training, harassment, OSHA procedures, sales solutions, and even—yes, really--rocket science.

If you should decide to use penalties (and not all trainers do) here are some suggestions.

Dealing with Different Experience Levels.

This is inspired by a problem we were asked to solve for one of our clients. The trainer wanted to design workshops using game shows for their annual company-wide training session. The problem was that the workshops were not going to be divided by skill level--rather by product line. That meant that in any given room they could have experts mixed in with new hires.
