Five educators from different regions: Europe, South Africa, East Asia, and Latin America describe the national, economic, and institutional conditions in which they have organized courses and programs to teach game design and development. Each will describe the relationships with local industry and game-making cultures, and discuss the possibilities for international collaboration among students and teachers, and how North American game design and development programs can work with their counterparts overseas.


Attendees will learn how they can work with colleagues outside of North America to create opportunities for global student mobility, learn how global industrial, political, and cultural contexts inform game education, learn how to internationalize their curricula, and how they might develop international careers as educators and researchers.
