Description

‘ResearchToday!’ is a research seminar series that shows the width of research in the Business School, and is a forum to foster the collaboration and exchange among interested colleagues. We meet weekly during teaching term times.

This week's seminar presentation will be given by Postdoctoral researcher Dr Jack Moore. To give you a taste of the session, a brief abstract can be found below:

In this talk we will discuss the progress of an Erasmus+ plus funded project to increase the use and effectiveness of educational games in higher education. Game based learning is becoming more common in higher education. Simultaneously, there have been many attempts to make universities of inclusive of minorities such as BAME, LGBTQ+, neural and motor diverse students. These barriers are often not considered when educational games are designed. The TEGA project is building a framework to facilitate University Lecturers to design their own games. To achieve this goal, focus groups asking what makes a game enjoyable, inclusive and sustainable have recently been run with educators, students, and game designers. The preliminary results of these focus groups, and a literature review on building inclusive educational games will be presented.
