Design and Development a Serious Board Game to Engage Students in Reflecting Daily Eating Habits
The positive impact of game-based learning on enhancing students’ motivation was evidenced in numerous
empirical studies. Games could provide students with joyful learning environment; however, it does not necessarily lead to
students’ learning. Therefore, further exploration of how games could enhance learning will contribute to research and
practice in game-based learning. This study aims to develop a serious board game, grounded on the philosophy of
constructivsm, to engage students in reflecting daily eating habits. 14 university students were invited to play the
game.Survey as well as interview were conducted to collect their experience in the game. The results indicated that
participants were engaged in interacting with the food knowledge and with peers. The results also supported the joyful
learning experience, which made learning fun. Recommendation for future research were provided.
