It’s a Game. It’s a Tool. It’s Learning Battle Cards!

You’ve heard of gamification for delivering training, but what about gamification when developing training? Instructional designers like to play games too!

Introducing Learning Battle Cards. Due to be released around the end of September, these cards are going to make our job fun, collaborative, creative, and innovative.

You have years of experience. You have a proven, effective template. It’s made your job easy. All you have to do is plug in new content, slightly adjust the same old activities, and you are done. Sound familiar?

If you need help sparking those creative brainwaves back into action, the Learning Battle Cards may be your answer. No, I am not affiliated with Learning Battle Cards in any way, but when I read about them I got excited. I see a lot of potential for these cards at Radcom and for my clients. I think I will see more creative and innovative ideas coming from my instructional design consultants.

Learning Battle Cards are the size of regular playing cards with a description a type of learning. There is also a whiteboard and tokens to help visualize the course flow.


Use the deck to teach new design ideas in a workshop or for creative inspiration in a course you are developing. Use them in a brainstorming sessions with your development team and in client design sessions. Never have stale, uninspired training again!
