Training is changing. Participant engagement has always been important but with more and more training taking place online it is even more critical. When participants are passively listening to training online they are unlikely to be able to concentrate for long or remember training content. This is a real issue leading to time, money and effort being wasted.
At Caspian Psychology we provide and develop gaming solutions that actively engage participants. We have solutions for online webinar and face to face training.
Our games are designed to be memorable experiences which help participants retain information. They are always designed around meeting clear learning objectives which means no more wasting time on innefective training.
We develop interactive games that engage people in the content and create lively group dynamics and discussion which means no more worrying about death by slides.
When we develop games for clients we apply our research expertise to partner with you and immerse ourselves in your world which means learning experiences are be-spoke, well thought through and credible.
The game went down well with the group. It was mentioned as one of their ‘best things about the course’. It was easy to use, even for a non IT literate person like myself! It worked really well to demonstrate the impact that design, multi-tasking and distractions can have on performance.

The Caspian games were used by our trainers to teach barrier management methods and demonstrate the impact of communication and decisions on safety. The use of games enhanced user engagement and the retention of information.

The game allowed us to really see behaviours in action & that really helps us then set-up the next set of conversations and the next level of work we do around the behaviours.
