Game Educators Summit
Are you a game teacher with an interest in connecting with other educators across the globe? Are you willing to share your experience and insights to improve the field? Join us on Gotland in June!
For soon-to-be three years, the Educators Summit has created a space to discuss the work and subjects that we collectively fly under the banner of game education. We have looked at teaching, research, outreach to industry and how to form a closer bond with each other.
The summit was instrumental in the forming of a European wing of the Higher Education Video Games Alliance, and last year’s meeting led to the formation of a Games Research Summer School. So whether you’re from an established education with veteran teachers, or a new education wondering where to focus your attention, you’ll find something useful in this meeting!
- What is your education’s unique niche?
- How did you develop that niche?
- What is your biggest weakness and your biggest threat?
- Do you have innovative methods of teaching your content?
We understand what it means to ask educators to take days away from their subjects, and have striven to provide content that is of value. This year we’re aiming to set up an international network of teachers who are willing to travel and teach in other departments. The presentations are meant as advert and request: Tell us what you’re great at, tell us what you need.
And bring your business cards. We want to bring people together.
These meetings are always a reflection of the participants excellence, and we’d love to have you.
- Register for a Symposium badge, and…
- … optionally, submit a presentation!
- Lastly; whether you can make it here or not, please fill in this pre-meeting survey to help keep the summit output maximally productive!
