Assistant Professor

The last few years, researchers and educators, as well as game designers have expressed a growing awareness of the educational potential of computer games. However, it is also generally agreed that designing successful educational computer games is a difficult task often resulting in games that either lack the educational potential or are no fun to play. People with different backgrounds, such as engineers, designers, academics, and pedagogues have to work together to develop successful educational games.
