Another successful PhD completion from our games group

Therese successfully defended her PhD this week in her viva. She received excellent feedback from her external and only has one table to update before submitting – week long party underway!

Therese’s PhD was on the use of game based feedback to encourage greater student engagement in higher education degree courses. I recently co-authored a paper with her and other colleagues that discusses this work and how it can be applied to virtual worlds. This paper has just appeared in the British Journal of Educational Technology and can be found at this link.
