So, I've finished my prelimary exams, and life is good. But it's time to get cracking. Conferences to attend, and DISSERTATIONS to write (!??!!). I guess the most difficult thing about dissertations is doing them. ;)
I think, for my dissertation, I will be thinking about the measurement of "learning" in game contexts. What that means from a technological perspective, and how contemporary communication/media studies methodologies, might in many ways, fall short as instruments. "Learning" is a complex variable. We are having fun with games, yes, but what is the endgame?
