Is There Really a Place for Fun and Games in Adult Learning?

A session at Game To Learn: Take 2!

Friday 18th March, 2011

10:40am to 11:10am (GMT)

Games have the power to engage and motivate learners by providing rich, experiential learning environments. In Higher and Further Education, however, there is increasing pressure for institutions to provide ‘value for money’ learning experiences, and students take their increasingly expensive educations very seriously. This raises the question of whether games – even serious ones – are appropriate or acceptable in our universities and colleges.
