Title: Teaching and learn entertainment computing - Between fun, experience and seriousness
Chair: Rainer Malaka, University of Bremen
Abstract: At this off-site workshop we have a satellite event to ICEC with in-depth discussion and brain storming sessions on how to teach entertainment computing. Study programs on game development and game technology have been started and many Universities all over the world.We want to bring together experiences on curricula and teaching methods in this field and to start a global initiative to share experience and to further develop curricula, didactics and student exchange.
Potential participants can apply by submitting a short position statement on their perspective on the field. Accepted participants will present these statements in short presentations in an introduction session. The largest part of the workshop will be of an interactive nature where participants develop a roadmap for a developing a global curriculum for entertainment computing. In addition, we want to discuss on how new methods from our own field, in particular serious games, could be used as educational methods.
In order to bring together participants and to allow for further cross-cultural experience we plan to organize a post-workshop excursion/tour to Machu Picchu for those interested.
