Dr Rowan Tulloch is a lecturer in digital media, video gaming and gamification at Macquarie University. His research looks at the techniques through which video games train player behaviour, and how this can be applied to non-gaming contexts. He is a national award winning lecturer, receiving a prestigious Australian Awards for University Teaching Citation in 2016. In that same year he won a highly competitive Optus Future Makers Grant for his work on using gamification to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged youth. Rowan is a big believer in the power of play to entertain, engage and inform.
