The forthcoming 7th Irish Conference on Game-Based Learning (iGBL2017) will be be hosted by in Cork this year on 22nd and 23rd June 2017, and bookings are now open.

iGBL provides a forum for all stakeholders interested in exchanging ideas, projects, and best practice on the use of games and game-based approaches to support motivation, learning, and change.

Researchers will be able to present and share their latest findings. Students will have an opportunity to present their work, showcase their games, meet specialists in this field and obtain feedback. Instructors will have the opportunity to discover new ideas and learn and share new game-based skills that they can integrate in their teaching. Companies will be able to showcase their products and explain how these can be used in the context of learning and motivation. The conference includes a mix of academic presentations, practical workshops, digital and non-digital games demos, along with plenty of opportunities to network.

This year, more than 70 authors (e.g., teachers, researchers, and students) will be presenting their work and developments on games and learning through 31 presentations (e.g., workshops, game demos, and research and practitioners’ presentations). See http://www.igbl-conference.com/authors/
