Game Jam date announced! Student participants needed!
Take part in the Department of Computing’s first ever Game Jam!

31st May 2016, Creative Edge.


We’re looking for 18 students who are interested in games to spend a couple of hours helping us in generating ideas for some educational games.

What is a Game Jam?
A game jam is a gathering of games enthusiasts who come together to discuss, plan, design, and create games within a short period of time.

At the Game Jam we will be discussing:
  • What are the most popular games amongst your peers today?
  • Why do you think these are popular?
  • Which platform (hardware software) do you use?
  • Do you play games alone or with someone else?
And also spending some time in groups to generate new games ideas.

Prizes will be on offer for the best concept and all students taking part will get a Game Jam t-shirt as a memento!

To take part email michael.banford@edgehill.ac.uk just expressing your interest. The first 18 students will be picked so don't delay!

CyberGaTE project launched
To address the growing threat of cyber-attacks across the UK, the Higher Education Academy (HEA) has worked with the Department for Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) to grant Edge Hill University more than £39,000 to improve cyber security teaching and learning.

Recent global studies indicate that while various universities offer courses related to cyber security, there remains a serious shortage of cyber security professionals to meet the demand of this rapidly growing sector.

Exploring the MOOC specification
Following recent discussions, our intended prototype MOOC is taking a new direction. We’re moving away from turning the TEL versions of our PBLs in MOOC versions and instead using it to explain the knowledge exchange model used on this project to support other academics or institutions develop their own model and scenarios for their own contexts.

This map explores our current thinking on the content of the revised MOOC.

Evaluation strategy concept maps completed
Evaluation strategy concept maps completed 30th January 2015admin The main features of the evaluations strategy for CSKE are: focus questions with an emphasis on impact and future development; use of concept mapping as a device for both data capture and communication; an iterative process which runs throughout the main project (and potentially beyond as it can then be ‘adopted’ by the project team); and evaluation outcomes and outputs which are easy to access and communicate and which are available to the project team for further development after the cessation of project funding.

The evaluation strategy concept map and the first iteration of the CSKE evaluation map have now been released. To read the full evaluation strategy, visit here.
