The annual Education in Games Summit (EiGS) is the premier professional learning event for teachers who want to bring videogames into their classroom. This one-day conference forms part of Melbourne International Games Week and offers a unique opportunity to hear from leaders in game-based learning and to develop practical skills and strategies in peer-led workshops.

The theme for #EiGS19 is 'Exploring challenges; seizing opportunities'.

This year's opening Keynote speaker is Dr Kate Ringland, an award-winning researcher with a particular interest in understanding, designing, and developing technology to help support people with disabilities. Dr Colleen Stieler-Hunt, a multi-award-winning educator, game designer, and researcher, will close the summit.

Alongside these outstanding keynote sessions will be a panel to discuss the barriers facing teachers in getting games into the classroom, workshops and breakouts around eSports, Indigenous game design, coding, rural game development and much more.
