This is the first call for papers for the 16th European Conference on Game Based Learning (ECGBL 2022) hosted by Lusófona University, Lisbon, Portugal on 6th – 7th October 2022.
This call will close on 16th March 2022.
The way in which education and training is delivered has changed considerably with the development of Game-Based Learning (GBL). The European Conference on Game-Based Learning offers an opportunity for scholars and practitioners interested in the issues related to GBL to share their thinking and research findings. Papers can cover a wide range of issues pertaining to GBL in education and training; technology and implementation issues associated with the development of GBL; use of mobile and MMOGs for learning; pedagogical issues associated with GBL; social and ethical issues in GBL; GBL best cases and practices, etc.
The conference committee welcomes contributions using a range of scholarly approaches including theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical methods. Action research, case studies and work-in-progress/posters are also welcomed approaches. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions, non-academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited.
In the first instance all submission types require an abstract. For more information please go to: http://www.academic-conferences.org/conferences/ecgbl/ecgbl-call-for-papers/

10th International Educational Game Competition
The International Educational Game Competition will once again be held alongside the conference in 2022. For more information and to enter the competition see http://www.academic-conferences.org/conferences/ecgbl/ecgbl-international-educational-games-competition/
We are planning for ECGBL 2022 to be a “hybrid” conference. Meaning that there will be physical events with virtual elements built into it to create an experience for both those who can attend in person and those able to attend online.
