"I have had the pleasure of working with Dave through the preparation of an educational session that I have presented at the 2021 Games-Based Learning Virtual Conference. Dave has been a brilliant conference organizer and host. Overall, the conference was very well structured to facilitate online engagement, and Dave provided excellent materials to support the preparation of high-quality presentations. Furthermore, Dave has been very supportive throughout my preparation process, proactively and regularly inquiring whether I needed any help, promptly responding to my queries, and demonstrating high flexibility and empathy in adapting to unforeseen circumstances that forced me to delay my work (a crucial support, given the troubled and unpredictable circumstances that we are all experiencing!!!) I highly recommend Dave for his professionalism and attitude, and I most definitely look forward to working with him again." - Carlo Fabricatore

"It is my pleasure to endorse Dave Eng. He is an exceptional thought leader in the world of games-based learning and he is great at pulling together communities to practice and strengthen knowledge bases and offer networking opportunities in learning initiatives in the field of games-based learning. I have recently joined the games-based learning alliance that Dave founded and it has been a wonderful opportunity to meet and connect with other people who are interested and actively contributing to games-based learning. This has been a wonderful opportunity to share my experience and also learn from others in the field. I have specifically benefited from the games-based virtual learning conference that Dave organized. It has been very carefully organized and curated, so the speakers have a lot of interesting viewpoints and experiences to bring to the table. This conference is a wonderful addition to the games-based community and I believe will help to build new knowledge in the field and foster innovation. Dave Eng is a true expert in games-based learning, and talented at bringing people together. This unique combination effectively fosters innovation in games-based eLearning communities which is rapidly growing and evolving." - Jennifer Varrichio PhD

"Dave is a great advocate and mentor in the Games Base Learning / Gamification world. His blog posts are clear and memorable. The organisation of the upcoming GBL conference has been seamless due to his excellent communication skills. I am sure it will run smoothly and be a big success!"- Natalie Denmeade

"To me, there is little more important than the power of critical thinking. If you consider your very best Mentors, Instructors and Educators you'll likely find them inspiring this power within you. I've watched, communicated, and learned from Dave for over a year now and it is very clear he has this ability. You will find that Dave will discuss a spectrum of topics from the application of gamification inside education to drive retention, to building moral choices in games. I never find his topics repetitive or boring and I am always surprised to learn something interesting I did not expect. If you are new to his content I recommend you make sure to check out his earlier posts." - Sean McDonald

"I was attending a Gamification Conference, where Dave was a panelist in a discussion about designing games for learning challenges (like the sudden switch to online classes). He proved to be very knowledgeable about behavioral design and pedagogy. He was sharing with us his experience in teaching and designing for students, all in an engaging and easy to follow manner." - Antonina Oraczewska

"Dave is a dedicated thought leader in the gaming community. His University XP serves as an invaluable resource for game designers and educators. He has also graciously supported the Georgetown University Wargaming Society (GUWS) by presenting on the role of games and learning." - Sebastian Bae

"Dave's contribution to the field of learning games through his podcasts and the University XP website has been useful to me as a learning professional. The ideas and discussion points he presents takes the field forward. He is insightful and goes out of his way to provide guidance. I am looking forward to more of his content, always." - Madhumitha Gopalakrishnan


"Dave is very knowledgeable and resourceful when it comes to teaching with board games. He writes cool articles, records a podcast, and conducts useful webinars. I can only recommend his work."- Zdenek Lukas, MA ✔🎲


"I discovered Dave's work a few months ago and I was so impressed by his articles that I asked him to translate them into French for our site : his knowledge of gamification and his thinking are really an added value for French teachers. His site is really rich and I encourage everyone to go there. I am an avid reader of his articles and his webinars are really excellent. Definitely a reference site and Dave is great and so interesting. Thank you for this great resource and everything you share Dave which is so helpful to us." - Christelle Quesne


"Dave and his website University XP has a wide selection of very interesting articles covering many different subjects revolving around games based learning and discussions on improving games design. A particularly positive mention goes to his Experience Points audio series which serve as a pleasant alternative to the more conventential text-based articles that you might find on a typical blog (personal favorites go to "Simulation vs Games" and "Fearful Fun"). Having said that, his conventional articles and learning resources aren't to be missed either so definitely give his blog a visit if you're looking for some useful nuggets of info in the realm of gamification." - Thomas Ackland

"I met Dave through a Facebook group where he was posting his UniversityXP.com blog posts. I quickly started talking with Dave and following University XP more closely. He was supportive of my graduate work and offered to help in any way he could. Not only was he engaging and helpful, but he also encouraged me to push my work further. When I was teaching about game-based pedagogy I gave my students blog posts from University XP because they are digestible articulate pieces on complicated subjects. Dave has been a great mentor and I hope to work with him more in the future." - Christopher Stuart, PhD

"I follow Dave's work via UniversityXP.com and his newsletter, and I really value the insight and in-depth knowledge he brings on games and gamification in learning. I write and design and run learning experiences using games and gamification, so I often find myself turning to Dave's work as a source of inspiration and ideas. My creativity needs feeding to do what I do well, and UniversityXP and the content I see from being connected to Dave really helps with that." - Terry Pearce

"I highly recommend Dave’s Gamification course. As a member of the NATO SAS 129 Research Task Group Gamification of Cyber Defence/Resilience I developed my own Cyber Resilience Card Game as a prototype for raising awareness and increasing resilience during gameplay. The DMC pyramid is a crucial concept in my project. Dave provides a brief but comprehensive introduction into the topic of gamification and covers important aspect for game design too. His course is an ideal starting point for beginners but also a valuable source for professionals. I also highly recommend Dave’s podcast. Dave covers topics from gamification, game-based learning, serious games, simulation and even wargaming." - Thorsten Kodalle

"Dave is endlessly creative and passionate about games-based learning. When we connected on LinkedIn he could not have been more forthcoming with his expertise and offering his time and effort. He was one of the first contributors to Ludogogy, my online games-based learning magazine. His article, ‘Play is Work’ was extremely well-received and made for fascinating reading. Dave is generous and highly collaborative, and works hard to bring together other professionals so that they can learn from each other. I look forward to receiving his newsletter and posts in my inbox as they always inspire and spark great ideas." - Sarah Le-Fevre
