Event Details

Tuesday, February 21st, 12:15-13:00 (online)

Speaker Julien Agaesse (PhD)


For over ten years, we have been exploring the effects of incorporating board games into educational settings. In the fall of 2021, we conducted a study on student’s behavior while playing online board games on the Steam platform with Zoom. In 2022, we then compared and analyzed the similarities and differences in student behavior when they played the same games in either board or digital formats. During this presentation, I will outline the organization of the game sequences, share the results of our study, and lead a discussion on the findings.Note: This is event will be held in English only.
