Previous studies showed that students in hospitality major have relatively low interest and motivation to learn in food safety-related courses. The objectives were to examine the effects of a tablet PC (TPC) simulation game as a class activity on students’ motivation to learn food safety and the factors influencing students’ motivation change. The results showed that students’ motivation to learn food safety knowledge increased significantly after participating in the TPC-simulation game. The results demonstrated that hospitality students’ motivation to learn food safety can be maximized when learners are engaged in the learning material with both cognitive and affective structures.
