Teaching & Learning
How do we use games to improve teaching and learning?
How can games help us understand the ecology of the world around us?
How do we transform physical and mental health with games?
Organisational Learning & Development
How do we use games, gamification and play to help organisations learn and develop? Can game-play across and between cultures and age groups lead to the design of future cross-sectorial product-process-production life-cycles and intelligence?
Technology Adoption & Social Change
How do we use games and technology to bring social change and make the society more inclusive?
How and to what extent can game-based systems ubiquitously and pervasively capture human and machine knowledge interactions, generate new knowledge and safe mission-critical reuse?
