Game Educators Summit
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.
As always, we’re looking for presentations of what you teach. If you’d like to submit a presentation, these are the areas we’d like you to focus on:
- 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?
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 Summit 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!
