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 was 'Exploring challenges; seizing opportunities' and featured 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, closed the summit summing up ways to overcome the barriers teachers face when introducing games for learning.
Alongside these outstanding keynote sessions were workshops and breakouts around eSports, Indigenous game design, coding, rural game development and much more.
