The call for participation to the 7th Irish Conference on Game-Based learning (iGBL2017) is now open.

iGBL2017 will be held on 22nd and 23rd June 2017 in Cork, and they welcome abstracts for game demos, presentations or workshops on the themes of games for learning, motivation and change.

The Irish Conference on Game Based Learning (iGBL), formerly Irish Symposium on Game-Based Learning, now in its sixth year, 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. It is a forum for like-minded people ( i.e., students, teachers,  researchers, or companies) to meet and share this enthusiasm for this platform.

  • Research students will have an opportunity to present their work, meet specialists in this field  and obtain feedback on their work.
  • Teachers and other practitioners will have the opportunity to discover new ideas and learn 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.

So, if you would like to share your experience of using games for learning and change, or demo a game that you have created, you can submit your abstract by 22nd February at
