A Review of the IEE's Involvement in Academic Gaming.
Ellington, H. I.; And Others
In partnership with the Institute of Technology in Aberdeen, the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) has pioneered the development of a range of highly sophisticated simulation games and case studies based on realistic engineering scenarios for use in secondary and higher education and industrial training. The initial involvement of IEE in academic gaming through the "Power Station Game" Project is described, as well as the subsequent development of that project; the Broadcasting Game Project, in which IEE became involved in the actual development of games; and the recent expansion of publication activities with Peter Peregrinus Ltd. (PPL). A discussion of possible future developments concludes the main body of the report. More detailed information is provided in three appendices: the first describes six games published by IEE and PPL; the second lists 41 papers published on the games; and the third indicates conferences and seminars at which the games have been publicized.
