Member of the International Program Committee for ECGBL 2011

I have now been added to the International Program Committee for ECGBL 2011 (5th European conference on Games-Based Learning), which will take place in Athens, Greece between the 20th and the 21st of October 2011. The venue for it will be the National and Kapodistrian University.

Over the last ten years, the way in which education and training is delivered has changed considerably with the advent of new technologies. One such new technology that holds considerable promise for helping to engage learners is Games-Based Learning (GBL).
This conference offers an opportunity for scholars and practitioners interested in the issues related to GBL to share their thinking and research findings. Papers can cover various issues and aspects of GBL in education and training: technology and implementation issues associated with the development of GBL; use of mobile and MMOGs for learning; pedagogical issues associated with GBL; social and ethical issues in GBL; GBL best cases and practices, and other related aspects.

The event is particularly interested in empirical research that addresses whether GBL enhances learning. This conference provides a forum for discussion, collaboration and intellectual exchange for all those interested in any of these fields of research or practice.
