Our Research Groups

One of the primary goals for the Games Institute (GI) is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration between its members. Over the last five years, the GI has seen the formation of a number of research groups which not only support discipline-specific work but are also open to all GI members who are interested in expanding their knowledge base.

The GI's research groups encourage collaboration and the cross disciplinary pollination of ideas. They also provide peer groups where researchers can discuss, present, and critique each other’s works from a variety of vantage points. All groups are supported by GI administrative staff, including the Research Communications Officer who offers direct support for knowledge mobilization and translation initiatives, media engagements, publication submissions review and grant-writing.
