Dissertation Research Series

Dissertation Research Series

I have been finishing up my dissertation proposal titled, “Motivation, Goal Orientation, and Academic Performance in Educational Games and Affinity Spaces” for a defense scheduled for February 28th.  Of course this means that I have been engaging in an extensive amount of research for the background information about games, motivation, and affinity spaces.

I will be sharing this information on the Immersed Games blogs through a series of posts, creatively titled the Dissertation Research Series.  Please note this is not the full text of my proposal, as I don’t think blog attention spans are quite that long.  I’ll be editing sections down into separate posts for easily digestible pieces of information.

The post has been edited below for a listing with links for each post in the series.

Part I | Educational Games Potential

Part II | Defining Games

Part III | Learning through Gameplay

Part IV | Game-Based Learning Research

Part V | Motivations for Game-Based Learning

Part VI | Motivations for Game-Based Learning Research

Part VII | Affinity Spaces

Part VIII | Affinity Spaces for Learning Research
