I’ve invited Rob to be our guest on the program today, because he was selected to lead a Gamification Design Build Workshop for us at GamiCon - The First International Conference for the Gamification of Learning which will be held in Chicago on October 6-8, 2018.
Rob Alvarez is an expert, speaker and advocate for the use of gamification in education. He’s the creator and host of Professor Game podcast, where he interviews successful practitioners, experts and gurus of gamification to inspire teachers, professors and educational leaders to make learning amazing. He's also at IE Business School, ranked consistently as one of Europe's top 5 and top 10 worldwide, where he works with interactive, engaging learning experiences.
For several years, Rob has been creating the engaging interactive learning materials used every day in business education at a leading business school. Since he jumped onto gamification he's been searching for as much information out there as he could find and applying it to projects with epic wins and lessons learned.
