Session 5C

Gamification and game-based learning

Would you like to liven up an otherwise dull lecture or lesson? Have you heard about gamification or game-based learning and wonder if it would work for you? What are the elements that make up a game and why are they effective for learning?

In this session you will learn the difference between gamification and game-based learning and see current examples of how they are being used in the fields of education and research. The aim is to have fun while learning and gain inspiration that you can begin using in your own teaching.
