    Hi there – got this from HASTAC and wondered if anyone in this group would be interested in helping him out – pls contact the guy involved if so:

    Hi everyone,

    my name is Leo Cao and I am conducting my Ph.D. dissertation research on individuals that use digital games as a tool for learning purposes. I am looking for potential subjects who use games in an instructional capacity, and are willing to participate in an interview study.

    The interview will take approximately a hour and will mainly focus on your personal and professional experience with the use of games for learning. It will be conducted in-person, over the phone, or web-video at your convenience. I would also be interested in any relevant documents youre interested in sharing in regard to your usage of games for learning.

    There are no monetary incentives involved in this study. There are opportunities to discover and learn novel approaches to using games for learning as part of active participation in the full study.

    If you know of colleagues that might be interested in this study, feel free to forward this email.
