Abstract

This paper explores the ways in which gaming can be employed to develop deep learning. This follows a long tradition of games in Higher Education and speaks to more recent trends towards 'gamification' (HEA, 2017). Specifically, the paper unpacks the ways in which the board game 'Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective' and the role-playing game 'Mars Colony' have been adapted to explore criminological issues. In this paper, I evaluate the resource implications of adapting games, as well as address student feedback. The paper also touches upon the ethics of play in dealing with complex and sensitive issues.
