Behavioural finance and immersive games: a pan-European framework for design and evaluation

By Gill Clough, Gráinne Conole and Eileen Scanlon


This paper describes the development of a Design and Evaluation framework that aims to help\ud stakeholders of a inter-disciplinary research project develop a shared understanding of project\ud goals and methods by pooling their knowledge of research approaches and methodologies.\ud The xDelia project (Xcellence in Decision-making through Enhanced Learning in Immersive\ud Applications), is a three-year pan-European project that uses wearable\ud sensors and serious games to investigate how people’s behavioural habits and emotional states\ud affect their financial decision making. The project combines research skills and expertise of\ud European partners from different methodological traditions (experimental, economic, field\ud research) who will work together to achieve the project goals. The Design and Evaluation\ud framework will provide a working collaborative model to capitalise on the different\ud approaches, using ongoing participatory evaluation to ensure the development of an integrated\ud set of research questions, optimum use of research instruments and effective collaboration\ud between the different disciplines.Peer-reviewedPost-prin
