About the Project Serious Games for Low Energy Building Construction Worker Training
This study aims to explore the possibilities of whether upskilling training can be delivered more successfully through the use of serious games, rather than with traditional methods. This research is focused on the effectiveness for the training of construction skills and the capacity for effecting attitudinal change. Additionally, the research will explore the opportunities provided by serious games in building on the characteristics of the typical construction learner in the development of learning resources.
This involved researching the effectiveness of serious games, with a particular focus on the affective domain. This study focused on a pedagogical approach that would best address the identified knowledge gaps and the need for attitudinal change amongst construction workers. The expected date of completion is October 1st, 2020.
