Game-Based Learning in Engineering Ethics
Engineers are often faced with social and ethical dilemmas throughout their everyday lives.
The popularity and prevalence of game-based or “playful” learning strategies has grown significantly over the past two decades, finding applications in a diverse range educational context. In this project, we address the application of playful learning to engineering ethics education, with a focus on fostering the skills that are necessary to act as a moral agent in the increasingly complex and challenging landscape of engineering decision-making. Playful learning is strongly supported by contemporary learning theory – situated/embodied cognition and learning, and we argue that the key to meaningful experience with gameplay lies in forging connections between the learner/player and the scenario at hand, by integrating highly-situated and context-rich scenarios.
