Game-based learning has attracted increasing interest over recent years due to the rise of digital gaming. Extensive research has shown the potential of games for facilitating motivation and student-centred learning. It is a type of game play that has defined learning outcomes and where the subject matter is balanced with gameplay.
The Irish Symposium on Game Based Learning is a forum for teachers, lecturers, students and researchers to disseminate research, exchange ideas and best practice on the use of games for enhancing teaching and learning.
This year iGBL2014 will be hosted by the Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) at CIT’s Bishopstown campus on 6th of June.
