The Warwick event turned out to be very useful for contextulaising our project with other investigations into innovative teaching and learning techniques. Not all of these turned out to be technological: Prof. Philip Sabin from KCL spoke about his use of simulation through war games (those games where the board is broken into small sections and gamers roll the dice to decide movement of troops and weapons across it) in teaching and assessment. Interestingly, like our project, his interest in the learning advantages of gaming were allied with the insights these techniques also afforded his research.

Since then I’ve been concentrating on producing a recorded presentation on the public engagement aspects of this project and my work in general for our University Court on Friday. A good opportunity to draw attention to our project within the institution.
