Description

Title

Playing with sequential learning and inquiry processes by bringing 'World Of Warcraft' to the real world – Based on reflective practice-based learning.

Summary

The PhD project investigates how the students’ motivation and autonomy, their ability to analyse and explore, and their reflective practice can strengthen a practice professionalism through the use of game principles from the computer game World of Warcraft. Through the use of Educational Design Research, the thesis thus develops guidelines and forms theory and methods that contribute to creating learning designs based on Reflective Practice-based Learning and Game-Based Learning.  The domain of Practice Theory will inspire the theoretical perspective through an understanding and interpretation of learning as “landscapes of practice” consisting of designed complex and personal learning trajectories.
