    Research Interests

    Dr Lameras is an Associate Professor at the Research Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Institute for Creative Cultures, Coventry University. His research interests span the areas of games science research in general and within the research strand of investigating how learning and teaching in Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) may be enhanced with the use of games. Teaching and learning aspects in relation to measuring, visualising and analysing data (in-game learning analytics) on student’s deeper learning assessment; as well as exploring metrics and indicators of tracking and monitoring teacher’s ways of guiding learning and enhancing in-game assessment (teaching analytics) are perpetuated through applied-based research.  Petros has worked as a researcher in European and national collaborative Research and Innovation projects exploring the use of technology in learning as well as the integration of games and digital content for developing authentic and meaningful teaching and learning experiences. He has been engaged in supporting and guiding teachers in designing, describing, capturing and representing their teaching ideas by developing and evaluating games for science teacher training in using inquiry-based learning for improving student’s scientific inquiry process. He has been involved in training creative professionals and educators in designing location-based driven games via a visual-based games authoring environment. He has worked autonomously and collaboratively in different instances for developing serious games in accordance to structured processes and agile game development procedures (e.g. JIRA, Unity, 3DSMax, C#, JavaScript, visual programing, rendering engines, narration techniques etc.) for conveying ideas and approaches to create a state of flow, uncertainty and separation mechanics as means to develop engaging, immersive and highly-entertaining games. Petros has been awarded the Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) award in UK for currying out research on features of serious games design encompassing an attempt to match game categories / mechanics with learning attributes. He has also been granted the Study Visits Programme part of the LLP for exploring the theme of gamification in education and training with a group of specialists and policy makers across Europe. He is currently supervising four PhD students, one at University of Warwick and three at Coventry University. He has published over 30 scientific journal and conference papers and he is member of scientific committees of high-impact technology-enhanced learning and gamification conferences. Finally, he has received recognition as Fellow of the Higher Education Academy for driving improvement in teaching quality.
