Gamification is quickly becoming a buzzword within many professional environments, and the field of student affairs is no exception.

The impact of good gamification design in the workplace is pretty incredible. Improvements in productivity and sales measure up to 60%, employees are more satisfied and engaged, and highly skilled employees are more likely to be retained, just to name a few of the top impacts.

And these benefits are easily transferable to students! With college enrollment numbers declining nationwide and our need to redefine engagement and success for a new generation of students, we could use some TLC in the form of gamification.

A Brief History of Gamification
The idea of adding game-like elements to tasks in order to promote learning is not new. Researcher Charles Coonradt has been interested in this topic since the mid-eighties when he published The Game of Work. His original research examined why people work harder at sports and other voluntary hobbies than at their jobs.

“Why would people pay for the privilege of working harder at their chosen sport or recreational pursuit than they would work at a job where they were being paid?”

Coonradt found five main reasons, namely that people crave clearly defined goals, better scorekeeping and scorecards, more frequent feedback, a higher degree of personal choice of methods, and consistent coaching.

This research provides the foundation for what gamification looks like today. Examples include badging programs, point-tracking, virtual or physical rewards, public leaderboards, and leveling up.

Modern-Day Gamification
There have been many significant innovations in the gamification industry since the mid-eighties. I wanted to highlight a few notable contributions, including Yu-Kai Chou’s more in-depth and actionable gamification framework called Octalysis.

Also worth mentioning is Modern Campus Involve, which utilizes digital incentives, points, level-ups, and more — all to gamify involvement and keep students motivated, engaged, and aware of the connection between co-curricular involvement, learning, and workforce readiness.

Finally, it’s interesting to note that many human resources departments are also incorporating gamification practices into training and employee development. Employees say that gamification elements makes them feel more productive (89%) and happier (88%) at work and believe they would be more productive (89%) if their work was gamified more.

Most importantly, however, there continues to be an increase in the perceived positive impact gamification has on employee psychological measures — like motivation, engagement, sense of belonging, and purpose.

I also recommend watching gamification author and entrepreneur Gabe Zichermann’s TEDxVilnius talk “The Future of Creativity and Innovation is Gamification”, in which he discusses other modern-day gamification examples. He also examples how leaders are leveraging this strategy to accomplish some pretty impressive feats and soar past their competition.

The question is no longer “is gamification an asset to companies or valuable as a learning tool?” We now need to be asking “what type of gamification should we implement to keep students engaged and happy?”

1. Establish and enforce clear, defined goals
Having a clear goal or win-condition is crucial in gamification design.

However, it’s not enough on its own; including a backstory or theme, along with the goal or objective and necessary rules, can be a fun way for students to connect with the material. It can also provide additional context for learning outcomes.

Consider including a short paragraph with your assignments that tells a little story or creates a scene in the students’ minds. You can expand upon this by creating badges or rewards to incentivize participation or even implementing a full-fledged syllabus that connects all the activities with the world or story you are building.

This can be completely fantastical (such as turning educators into Dungeon Masters), a modification of a real-world context (like using Angry Birds to teach students about complex math topics or mimicking a zombie apocalypse to train for a 5K), or an adaptation of a popular game, book, or movie (think Pokémon GO).

Go all-out and add graphics and references from your story to handouts, presentation slides, decorations, and more.

The student employment program at my institution, Northern Arizona University, recently won the Career Innovation Showcase award from the Career Leadership Collective for our innovative career initiatives and contributions to scaling career services.

Charged with establishing processes, tools, and templates for a workforce of nearly 4,000 people, our team looked to NACE’s Career Readiness Competencies to anchor the program and successfully embedded competencies throughout the student employee life cycle.

We even managed to gamify career-readiness conversations by creating a set of collectible coaching cards based on the competency areas. This has helped better prepare student employees for their futures after graduation.

The important thing to remember here is that gamification is most successful when students are able to be creative within some constraints (think Minecraft or building Legos). Keep in mind that the boundaries you design will ensure that students stay focused and engaged.

2. Utilize and improve scorekeeping and scorecards to track progress
Another smart gamification tactic for student affairs professionals is to feed into the instant gratification we know students crave.

This is where things like badging and tangible rewards come into play. Mirroring these game elements and tapping into different motivational types (with things like material rewards and visible accomplishment trackers) helps students feel like they are progressing toward levels of mastery.

“Leveling up” is one particularly popular strategy. Lee Sheldon, a professor in the Department of Telecommunications at Indiana University, gamified one of his courses by replacing traditional grades with an “experience points” system.

Sheldon starts every student at zero experience points (zero EXP). They can then earn points through the completion of “quests” — things like individual projects, quizzes, reflection papers, and group activities. At the end of the course, students’ accumulation of  EXPs determines their grade.

This type of scorekeeping and progress-tracking is also a great way to stir up a little friendly competition outside of the classroom.

Digital badging programs, like Adobe Certifications and LinkedIn skill quizzes, reward the hard work and time users put into learning new things. Digital badging programs also showcase achievements in a public, professional, and meaningful way by integrating with social media.

As a self-proclaimed gamification nerd, I’m very excited to bring this strategy to my own institution. We’re working to launch a digital badge program to highlight students’ completion and knowledge acquisition of career readiness curricula, create ways to link achievements to their social media profiles, connect skills developed with prospective employers, and more!

“Imagine a world where there is no longer a divide between what you have to do and what you want to do. That’s the power of gamification.” - Yu-Kai Chou
Beyond badges and credentials, there are countless free web-based resources (with additional functionalities via premium subscriptions) that can help you incorporate scorekeeping and progress-tracking leaderboards.

Chore Wars is an online platform that allows users to create customized avatars, complete duties and chores, and earn EXP for being the first to log a completed task. You can even set up recurring tasks with diminishing EXP values or make one-time events that are first come, first served.

This is a wonderful tool that I’ve used as an RA to engage new roommates in establishing proper hygiene and tracking habits. I’ve also thought about using Chore Wars to award treats for completing activities and leveling up or to allow students to spend in-game gold pieces on real, tangible prizes.

Kahoot! is another popular service that offers pre-made games, quizzes, and interactive activities to measure learning outcomes. I have created several interactive Kahoot! quizzes in my current role, including a pre-resume workshop knowledge check, a university resources quiz for student math coaches, and a student leadership conference presentation activity about turning weaknesses into strengths.

GooseChase allows users to set up scavenger hunts composed of missions. Each mission involves a clue that leads students to complete an objective and submit their responses as photos, videos, text responses, or geotagged locations. I’ve used GooseChase to gamify campus tours as a part of new employee onboarding and for various student social events downtown.

The key takeaway here is that we need to leverage the many excellent tools available to gamify our current practices. That way, we can make tasks and assignments feel rewarding and developmental, rather than mundane and disheartening.

3. Cultivate more feedback and personal choice
How do we communicate the “why?” or the “WIIFM?” (what’s in it for me?) behind these gamification efforts to our students?

The solution lies in getting students involved in creating their own stories. In other words, we need to include them in discussions about defining learning outcomes.

I believe that a popular series of children’s horror fiction novels from the mid-nineties shows us how to do this.

The Give Yourself Goosebumps series utilizes a modular learning design framework, which allows readers to interact with the plot. Actor and entertainer Neil Patrick Harris took this concept a step further when he released his memoir, Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography, which allowed the reader to choose which path for Neil to follow as you learn about his life.

As the examples above illustrate, by creating a central story framework with built-in flexibility for decision-making and multiple paths toward the same outcome, you can create an illusion of customization and formulate an experience that is unique, yet scalable.

Many of us likely already do this without realizing it.

For example, we might utilize the same core framework but verbally adjust a workshop or presentation to be audience-specific. And we might customize our agendas for one-on-ones with students in order to best fit their individual needs.

“The future of creativity and innovation is gamification.” - Gabe Zichermann
This type of gamification is also attainable on a larger scale. My institution utilizes Kognito — an interactive, web-based training aimed at helping students, staff, and faculty identify students in mental distress. The program has proven effective in increasing student intervention efforts when their peers have exhibited signs of depression or suicidal ideation.

Kognito utilizes avatar-based technology and allows users to assume the role of someone who is concerned about several students. Users first analyze the profiles of these virtual students to identify who is most at risk. Then, users engage the virtual students in simulated conversations — with multiple decision trees and triage opportunities — to determine whether (or not) to refer them to various campus and community resources… and how to do so.

With so many great tools and resources at our fingertips, it’s easy to incorporate gamification strategies into our everyday work.

As the needs of students continue to evolve, so must we. I am excited to see how gamification shapes the future of creativity and innovation for students and professionals alike.

You Shouldn’t Always Rely on Friends and Family to Support Your Career
Karin Davies
Apr 14, 2017

The MPW Insiders Network is an online community where the biggest names in business and beyond answer timely career and leadership questions. Today’s answer for, “How can you find career support outside of your friends and family?” is written by Karin Davies, senior vice president of human resources at Peak 10.

Friends and family are great to lean on for advice, but they aren’t always available. In those situations, I have to turn to other people in my life to help me get through professional conundrums.

First and foremost, I try to network with other human resources professionals. For example, a Peak 10 employee team competes annually in the YMCA of Greater Charlotte’s C2 survival race against seven other local businesses. As part of this effort, I’ve created strong professional relationships with other HR professionals in the area. I often rely on them to help me with HR-specific issues I’m having at work.

I often plan continuing education events in the HR field with past bosses and colleagues. This offers us valuable networking time. As we have had similar professional experiences and already know each other well, we can focus our evenings and breaks on taking deeper dives into the session topics. This helps us not only bring better ideas back to the office, but it also re-strengthens and deepens our relationships. We often reference knowledge or practices gleaned from these continuing education events to help each other with work-related problems.
You can also find career support from working with organizations related to your industry or profession. Doing so helps you meet people outside of your organization who still understand the work you do. If the organization has subcommittee work available, try it out. You might find people who can offer advice or ideas for your current projects at work.

If you’re far enough in your career, you might want to consider taking a board position at one of these organizations. Such boards are fantastic places to find powerful contacts in your field, create new business relationships, and give you future career ideas. Accepting a board role can be daunting, so make sure you have enough time to do it and that the work will be relevant to your career.

Keeping in contact with old mentors, whether from a past job or networking group, is also incredibly important. Even if you think you know the answers to some work-related issues, it always helps to run them by people that you trust. They can often provide guidance and push you to look at things from a different angle.

Lastly, I’ve found it valuable to create a 30-minute bimonthly call with past colleagues to discuss a dedicated topic that’s meaningful to the group. You can think of it as a kind of professional book club. Select a moderator who facilitates the discussion around three to four questions, and have that last 10 to 15 minutes. Then open the floor to pressing issues that the call participants could use advice on. These topics can include a general conundrum about someone’s career or a particular scenario someone is struggling with at work.By spreading a wide net across your professional network, you’ll find that you have more people around you than you expected that are happy to offer help or advice.


Life Style / Proven Ways Water Makes You Awesome
« on: February 17, 2017, 05:49:06 PM »
From the stuff we drink and swim in, to the steam that eases congestion and the ice that reduces swelling, water is all around us (and even in us). Heck, it kind of is us. “Water makes up about two thirds of who we are, and influences 100 percent of the processes in our body,” says CamelBak hydration expert Doug Casa, PhD. That probably explains why we feel better when we’re drinking enough of it. To learn exactly how water is helping us, as well as some creative ways to use it, check out these 34 reasons why you should go hydrate right now.

1. It could aid weight loss.
Anyone looking to lose weight could be helped by upping their water intake. Studies have found that when participants drink water before a meal, they lose weight faster than those who did not drink water  . Extra H2O helps us eat less by making us feel full, and it may also boost metabolism. CamelBak hydration advisor Kate Geagan, RD says it’s not uncommon to put on weight by mistaking thirst for hunger, and she offers this pro tip: Next time you feel fatigued or sluggish, “drinking water may be just what [you] need to perk up.”

2. It powers our warm-weather exercise.
With the proper precautions, working out in the heat is usually fine—and staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do. The hotter the workout, the sweatier we tend to get, so it’s extra important to replace those lost fluids. Determining sweat rate informs good rehydration strategy: “Once an athlete [knows his or her] sweat rate, they can begin to practice replacing these fluid losses in training and be optimally prepared for [athletic exertion],” says Casa.

3. It keeps things moving, digestion-wise.
Water helps us, you know, go by helping dissolve fats and soluble fiber. Drinking enough water prevents constipation and also reduces the burden on the kidneys and liver by helping to flush waste products. Geagan breaks it down: “In the large intestine, water binds with fiber to increase the bulk of the stools, reduce transit time and make elimination easier. When you don't drink enough water and fluids, the colon pulls water from stools, increasing your risk of constipation.”

4. It helps endurance athletes fight fatigue.
Water is an integral part of most any workout, and it becomes especially important in order to prevent dehydration during long workouts. When exercising for an hour or more, drinking water treated with carbohydrates and salts (by mixing in tablets such as Nuun, or making a DIY version) can help maintain fluid balance, which aids athletic performance and helps prevent post-exercise fatigue and exhaustion .

5. It might protect against some types of cancer.
Research has found that the greater the fluid intake, the lower the incidence of bladder cancer, with more significant results when the fluid is water . One possible reason could be that urinating more frequently prevents the buildup of bladder carcinogens. Staying hydrated may also reduce the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer .

6. It can improve mood.
Drinking water makes us feel so refreshed that it actually improves our state of mind. You don’t even have to be severely in need of it to benefit: Even mild dehydration has been shown to negatively impact moods .

7. Fun, frozen workouts are great for you.
When it’s too snowy or icy to go for a run, or you want a workout that’s as fun as it is good for you, find yourself some frozen water. Try ice skating for a low-impact workout that challenges your balance, get in some hill-work while sledding, get a full-body workout while cross-country skiing, or improve your cardiovascular endurance with snow-shoeing  .

8. Drinking it may help prevent headaches, naturally.
Going without water for too long causes headaches for some people, and has been identified as a migraine trigger  . The good news is that in a study on the effects of water on headaches, participants experienced “total relief” from their headaches within 30 minutes of drinking water (two cups, on average) . Geagan says a good way to prevent headaches is to stay hydrated throughout the day. And if you’ve already been hit with a  dehydration-triggered headache, you’ll need significantly more water to help it go away. She recommends drinking two to four cups of water for headache relief within one to two hours.

9. It keeps our kidneys working.
Kidneys remove waste from our bodies, help control our blood pressure, and balance fluids, so they’re crucial to keeping our systems running smoothly. One surefire way to keep them working properly? Adequate water consumption! So drink up to keep those kidneys in tip-top shape.

10. It energizes us.
Next time you’re feeling zonked, try drinking a couple glasses of water. Feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration and filling back up on H2O could zap the sleepiness .

12. It may help keep us alert.
If you’re going to need to concentrate for long periods of time, keep water handy to help you stay refreshed, hydrated, and focused: Dehydration can impair your attention span, memory, and motor skills  .

13. It protects our joints and cartilage.
Water keeps the cartilage around our joints hydrated and supple, ensuring that our joints stay lubricated. It also protects our spinal cord and tissues, keeping us healthy from the inside out. Geagan explains that cartilage—the rubbery material that coats our bones—is about 85 percent water. To keep this protective material healthy, we need to keep hydrated.

14. It powers our cold-weather workouts.
Most of us think of those sweaty, summer workouts as the ones we should be guzzling water before, during, and after. But staying hydrated while exercising in the cold is crucial, too: One of the ways our bodies lose water is through respiration, and when we exercise in the cold, we’re working harder under the extra layers of clothing and breathing more heavily as a result. But even though we’re doubling down on fluid loss, one study found that cold weather weakens thirst. The result? We’re working hard, losing water, and not getting any body cues to drink up, which can lead to dehydration .

16. It takes the edge off of hangovers.
Drinking alcohol causes dehydration, which can lead to hangovers. Having a glass of water with each alcoholic drink you sip is one way to offset the dehydration (and the day-after misery).

17. It helps us think more clearly.
Dehydration causes shrinkage of brain tissue. So when we haven’t been drinking enough water, our brains have to work a lot harder to perform at the same level . One study even found that students who brought water to tests did better on their exams.

18. It cleans non-toxically.
Whether you need to clean your home, clothes, dishes, laundry, or yourself, water is the basic ingredient in many all-natural cleaning products. These products have all the cleansing punch with none of the toxicity, which is better for homes, health, and the environment.

19. Gargling keeps you healthier.
A study that followed 400 participants during cold and flu season found that those who gargled water regularly were significantly less likely to contact upper respiratory infections and that when they did, their symptoms weren’t as severe . (Maybe it’s time to supplement that flu shot with funny throat noises!).

20. Eating it hydrates us—deliciously.
Water-rich fruits and vegetables like cucumber, watermelon, and strawberries contain minerals, salts, and natural sugars the body needs for optimum hydration levels, so eating them can sometimes rehydrate us more effectively (and a lot more tastily) than water alone.

21. Working out in it (yes, in it) is good for aerobic fitness.
Deep water running and water aerobics offer cardio workouts without the impact. For cross training that’s no-impact and low-stress, hit the pool. Then there’s aqua spinning, which has been growing in popularity for a reason: It provides a workout as effective as cycling on land, and might even offer increased cardiovascular benefits.

22. Living near it is good for our health.
One study showed that good health is more prevalent the closer one lives to the coast . Whether it’s the proximity to sea air, greenery, or opportunities to soak up sunshine on the beach, spending time near the water makes us healthier.

23. It balances our fluids.
About 60 percent of the human body is made of water, and keeping our fluids balanced means that all that water is doing its job—transporting nutrients, aiding digestion, regulating temperature, and so on.

25. Swimming around in it works out the body and mind.
Swimming has been found to improve long-term physical and mental health and is a great option for anyone who wants an impact-free cardio workout  . Those seeking peace of mind might consider diving in too; spending time in the pool is believed to reduce depression.

26. When frozen, it provides pain and swelling relief for soft tissue injuries.
Ice has been shown to be an effective short-term therapy for sprains and strains. Cold packs reduce blood flow and swelling in the affected area and also treat pain .

27. Spending time in cold water is good for athletes.
Studies show that immersion in cold water is beneficial for sustained athletic performance in the heat, and for treating muscle damage after exercise  . On hot days, immersion in cold water can keep body temperatures level and blood flowing.

28. It’s been linked to heart health.
Can drinking water keep us heart healthy? There seems to be a link between risk of death from coronary heart disease and water intake: Research has shown both that consuming more water means a lower risk of death from coronary heart disease and that risk of death rises when intake of “high-energy fluids” (like soda and juice) increases .

30. Waterbeds can help some people with back pain.
Perhaps there’s a therapeutic reason that waterbeds were all the rage in the '70s and ‘80s. Research indicates that waterbed mattresses are associated with improving back pain symptoms and providing a good night’s sleep (though the benefits were small) .

31. It may help relieve congestion.
Stuffy nose got you down? Inhaling steam from a humidifier or pot of boiling water can help clear up congestion. Salt water can also break up all the gunk that makes us stuffy: Stream it from one nostril to the other with a neti pot or try a saline nose spray to loosen things up.

সফলতার একমাত্র সূত্রঃ
Failure + Never Give-up = Success

A team of Art of Living (AOL) was invited in Abdul Kadir Mollah City College, Narsingdi on May 30, 2016 for conducting a motivational session on ART OF LIVING.  Director of Students’ Affairs and Co-author of the book ‘Art of Living,’ Mr. Syed Mizanur Rahman conducted the session. A student from Master’s Program, Sayeda Sadia Shahrin from the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication of Daffodil International University and ex-student of that college bridged between the two educational institutions to coordinate the session.

Over 300 students of the college participated the session. They gave their feedback through evaluation form to the AOL team. They were satisfied with the session, they wrote.

Daffodil International University introduced a course named ART of Living- that has been designed by Mr. Md. Sabur Khan, Honorable Chairman (BoT) of Daffodil International University and Mr. Syed Mizanur Rahman, Director of Students' Affairs. To spread Art of Living in all over the country and contribute through Academic Social Responsibility, Daffodil International University has launched ART of Living: a Motivational Session at different Colleges all over in Bangladesh.  According to this design the team visited the college.

It has been perceived from different evaluation that intellectual ability needs to be exercised in an effective way through scheduled practice and performance.

Success comes not just from the knowledge and skills but also from behavior which can create distance between success and failure. And we can achieve expected behavior only by learning and unlearning ways of thinking that finally craft body language and ensure effective living in this beautiful world.

•   To achieve ability to understand life positively in personal, family and professional levels by joining this session.
•   To introduce meaningful education for a change
•   To learn transformation through Education
•   To spread Art of Living in all over the country
•   To introduce Daffodil International University as the first and best contributor of Academic Social Responsibility in the society. 

Session Overview:
In total 308 female students attended the motivational session. The session was held for total one and half hour. Mr. Rahman focused on some basic education of Art of Living. He discussed about time management in every aspect of life; coming out of box; self-evaluation; spreading ethics and values in the society, learning from family; controlling self-emotion; enjoying life in every moment; not regretting and building own identity; respecting and understanding feelings of parents and loving them. He taught about the mathematics of brain that calculates every thought of human being. At the end of the session, 2 videos has been shown regarding love and respect to parents.

Findings From the session:
An evaluation form has been filled up by the participants of the session. What they have learned from the session, it was asked in the evaluation form. Around 250 participants responded the question. All of them said that the session is very much inspiring for them. Even they have categorized what they have learned from the session:
1.   Self-confidence: They felt that they shall grow their self-confidence and never upset for any failure.
2.   Hard work in life: Once again they have got the reminder that there is no alternative of hard works in life. If one wants success in life s/he must work hard.
3.   Time management: Work should be done at a time. One should maintain time in every aspect of life.
4.   Emotion Management
5.   Self-controlling of mind and brain
6.   Relationship with parents: In this session, two videos has been shown regarding love and respect to parents. Participants acknowledged that they have got a message from the video and throughout the session on how parents love their children and sacrifice their life only for their children. Parents only want to see their children to be a good human being.
Questions from the session:
Some questions have been raised from the participants in the session:
“How do I convince my feelings to my parents?”
“What do we do when we face indecision?”
“What can I do for weakness on confidence?”

By means of these questions it is perceived that the session was impressive to the participants and it has cut a mark in participants’ mind.

This session will expand the ability to understand the experiences of everyone, even with those we do not share ideas, thoughts. Participants will learn humanitarian qualities that they already known before but don’t utilize in life. Humanitarian qualities will be basic tools for enjoying the journey from “I” to “We” to promote effective living in this precious world. Without humanitarian qualities, the drive for profit in global trade becomes the sole guiding principle of public policy and action.
