House Points for Games Students

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

A little while ago I proposed a little research project to  encourage researchers within CMAT – (GROUPS – Gamifiying Research Outputs Under a Points System – still the acronym / name of a research project I am most impressed with)  – anyway it didn’t go anywhere, but Bobbie and I liked the idea of House Points – so with the aid of my Level 4 Fundamentals of Gameplay students we’ve crafted a house points system and unleashed in on the students. It’s to encourage non academic engagement as opposed to grades.
