Event Details

Game Science and Game-Based Learning: Bringing Education to Life

Co-organised with the Serious Games Institute as part of the SGI Second Wednesday event series

 

In a time of increasing pressure on educational resources and the emergence of new forms of interactive digital learning, game-based approaches are gaining popularity with teachers and pupils alike. Games can be engaging and immersive, and have the potential to enliven education. This event will bring together a diverse group of speakers to debate and discuss how game-based approaches can be used to improve learning and how such practices can be evaluated, encouraged and spread. The event will be co-hosted by Nesta and the Serious Games Institute, as part of the SGI Second Wednesday event series. Speakers will include Dr Jo Twist (UKIE), Rebecca Rufo-Tepper (Institute of Play), Charlie Love (Aberdeen City Council), and Martha Henson (London Educational Games Meetup, edugameshub).

 

This event seeks to convene researchers, policy makers, industry professionals, practitioners, students, and other interested parties. Through lively debate, we hope to elicit concrete recommendations on how digital games can be better used and integrated within education to improve learning outcomes.

 

Registration will begin at 3pm with the event commencing at 3.30pm. the event will be followed by drinks and networking from 5.30pm.
