Over the last ten years, the way in which education and training is delivered has changed considerably with the advent of new technologies. One such new technology that holds considerable promise for helping to engage learners is Games-Based Learning (GBL).
The University of Paisley was founded in 1897 and matured to University status in 1992. Operating on 3 campuses in Scotland (Ayr, Dumfries and Paisley), it currently has 1,300 staff guiding some 11,500 students. The Paisley campus is located in the town of Paisley and is the original campus of the University. Around 800 students follow programmes on this campus. The School of Computing and Information Systems has been providing a degree course in Computer Games Technology since 2001 and recently received accreditation from the Sector Skills Council for the Audio Visual Industries, one of only two computer games degree courses in the UK to receive this accolade.
