Session Name:

Educators Soapbox


This annual session will consist of a series of enlightening, opinion based microtalks as given by veteran educators and game scholars. Experience different perspectives on preparing students to avoid typical first-job pitfalls, defending why one teaches in a game program, voicing the struggles of urban minority students studying games, cultural design aesthetics for teaching game design to youth of color, game design as a liberal art, and harassment and toxicity in the academy as presented by this cast of colleagues: Laura Dilloway (inkle Studios), Seth Hudson (GMU), Alec McClure (CUNY), Damon Packwood (Gameheads), Jane Pinckard (USC), and Gillian Smith (WPI).
