10 July 2013: "Towards a framework for games and simulations in STEM subject assessments"


This webinar will explore a proposed framework designed to support the 'routine' development of effective games and simulations for assessment in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects. Currently, providing games and simulations to address specific educational objectives in STEM subjects is a craft activity, requiring custom-built applications and hence making difficult-to-share and difficult-to-reuse solutions. To address this we propose a framework for the creation of Pedagogically Effective Games & Simulations (PEGS). The framework supports the construction and machine-processable expression of an educational intention which can be turned into a computer-deliverable serious game, simulation, or adaptive formative assessment with an element of pedagogical validity.


Presenter: Gary Wills (University of Southampton, UK)


Hosted by: Professor Geoffrey Crisp (RMIT University, Australia) and Dr Mathew Hillier (Teaching and Educational Development Institute, University of Queensland, Australia).


Starting 07:00AM UST/GMT (Duration approx 1 hour).
