“At last year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences held in Waterloo, Ont., the CFI caught up with David Waddington, a Concordia University researcher who studies the impact of video games on civic awareness. The CFI is a supporter of the Big Thinking lecture series at this year’s Congress, to be held in Victoria, B. C. from June 1-8.
David Waddington is an Assistant Professor in Concordia University’s Department of Education. One of his research projects stems from a theory by video game ethicist Miguel Sicart, who believes video games can help educate people about important social issues and encourage social engagement.” – from report posted on YouTube
