We describe an approach to reducing systematic bias in financial decision-making. We explicitly reject an approach based on the transmission of propositional knowledge. Rather we develop a learning design which is founded in recent research on the role of emotions and their regulation in financial decision-making. We describe a pedagogic approach which supports the development of emotion-regulation skills in a serious game environment and supports their translation into ‘real-world’ trading
