Using Games to Enhance Learning and Teaching provides educators with easy and practical ways of using games to support student engagement and learning. Despite growing interest in digital game-based learning and teaching, until now most teachers have lacked the resources or technical knowledge to create games that meet their needs. The only realistic option for many has been to use existing games which too often are out of step with curriculum goals, difficult to integrate, and require high-end technology.

Using Games to Enhance Learning and Teaching offers a comprehensive solution, presenting five principles for games that can be embedded into traditional or online learning environments to enhance student engagement and interactivity. Extensive case studies explore specific academic perspectives, and featured insights from professional game designers show how educational games can be designed using readily accessible, low-end technologies, providing an explicit link between theory and practice. Practical in nature, the book has a sound theoretical base that draws from a range of international literature and research.

"It is perhaps the one game genre which stand outs the most here. In publishing this work the authors have very astutely filled a gap in the existing field of books on this topic, and have done so in a very detailed and comprehensive manner." -Wajeehah Aayeshah, Ariadne: Web Magazine for Professionals 2012

"The book offers the fundamentals, from the rudimentary to the quite advanced ... Using Games to Enhance Learning and Teaching is an impassioned, valuable book, entirely worthy of educators' consideration." -Reflective Teaching
