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). The 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. We are 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.  


The conference committee welcomes contributions on a wide range of
topics using a range of scholarly approaches including theoretical and
empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical
methods. Action research, case studies and work-in-progress/posters are
welcomed approaches. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions,
non-academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main
themes are also invited. 


Publication opportunity


Papers accepted for the conference will be published in the conference
proceedings, subject to author registration and payment. Selected papers
will also be considered for publication in a special issue of the
Electronic Journal of e-Learning and to the International Journal of
Game-Based Learning. The latest issue of the Electronic Journal of
e-Learning is available to read online.
