"Towards a framework for games and simulations in STEM subject assessments"

There is no cost to attend this online seminar.

This webinar will explore a 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).
