Educators frequently face serious problems concerning students' engagement and knowledge retention. As a proposed solution, gamification represents a new tool for active learning to increase students' motivation and thus improve their learning results. The goal of this paper is to investigate the effects of gamification on short-and long-term knowledge retention in all-day workshops on sustainable transport. A longitudinal experiment with 334 logistics students was conducted comparing the results of gamified and non-gamified workshops with students as future managers. The results suggest that gamification is an effective measure to increase students' learning outcomes with respect to sustainable transport.
