WIT GRIT FIT - Career Development through Gamification and the Career Design Canvas

May 21/22, 2021

The WIT GRIT FIT framework by Avid Adventures synthesises decades of research and best practices in skills and career development, and distills them into an online game, a Career Design Canvas and other intuitive tools which have been used by government, businesses and schools. This workshop begins with the theoretical foundations of the WIT GRIT FIT framework and shows how it all comes together in the Career Design Canvas. Participants then get the opportunity to experience a facilitated, taster version of the game on their own mobile phones before being immersed in case studies on how the set of WIT GRIT FIT tools are helping students and working professionals in Singapore, Bangladesh and the USA.
