Poster presentation at VS-Games conference 2016

Andrea presented a poster entitled “Woes of an RCT for Game-Based Learning Research” at the¬†8th International Conference on Virtual Worlds and Games for Serious Applications, a.k.a. VS-Games, in Barcelona on September 8th and 9th, 2016. The purpose of the poster was to foster a discussion about the pros and cons of employing a randomized controlled trial methodology in serious games research and to talk about what methods might be valid in order to balance internal and external validity in such studies. The poster was well received at the conference, whose overarching goals are to¬†develop and nurture theoretical and academic rigour in the discussion of serious games and virtual worlds.
