Let the game begin!

Development is growth

Ciska Harte - Founder Velites Online Leadership Program

Developing yourself is key to a successful career. Without development there is no growth and people cannot move to your next step. But development doesn’t mean following a training and get your diploma. It’s much more than that.

If you do a training, but you are not able to implement the things you’ve learned, you do not make any progress. You feel frustrated because you are stuck in the things you did before. You are disappointing yourself. And you feel maybe lonely, because nobody sees you’re struggling.

Therefore, in your development, the transition from theory to practice is key. This transition often goes hand in hand with behavioral changes which is one of the most difficult things to do. So better to do it right.


Right-brained thinking in a left-brained world

2018-15 down to earth

Our world is changing. Computers are taking over much more from people and work is being outsourced to less-expensive areas of our world. This results that instead of left-brain people who are taking the lead, we’re heading into the age of the ‘right-brain-dominance’.

Design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning are the six senses essential to re-active our right-brain. Many of these senses are coming back in the process of playful learning.


Leadership game - velites

Ludodidactics is using principles from the gaming industry to design learning experiences. Student behavior is the starting point of the design, rather than the knowledge that needs to be transferred.

The MDA-model (mechanics, dynamics, aesthetics) is the most important gaming model related to behavior. From a design perspective the MDA flows the same sequences, but from a player perspective the ADM-sequence is followed. The player sees the game in the opposite direction of the designer.

“I want to buy the game ‘claim your success’ for New Years Eve. Just to play with friends as it’s so fun and interesting.” – Ludodidactics Masterclass

“Finally, there is a program that is focused on changing habits in a fun way.” – Brand new team lead
