|This panel brings together educators who have been part of developing more than one game education program. Collectively, the panelists have taught in programs at 9 institutions in the US, Canada, and Europe. They will share stories about the ways a school's local context (geography, institutional structure, faculty) can have a big impact. They will discuss which teaching ideas worked well in one place and translated well at another, as well as which ideas definitely didn't. The panel will share tips for what to do if you are considering moving to a new school and trying to apply what you know.
