We are excited to announce the GAMEHIGHED Czech Conference (29.06.2021, Prague), organised by Charles University and Czech Game Developers Association. Its primary target are Czech higher-ed institutions and their partners involved in game-related education. It takes place at Kampus Hybernska in hybrid online+on-site format, from 9:30 to 17:00 local time. The timetable and registration link can be found here (in Czech language): https://www.kampushybernska.cz/2021/06/24/gamehighed-czech-conference-2021/
The conference begins with the presentation of GAMEHIGHED outputs, with special focus on the educational value of game jams (this is the Czech specialty within GAMEHIGHED). In the second half of the day we give floor to other edu-instutions to present their edu-programmes and experiences:
- Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT)
- Masaryk University in Brno (MUNI)
- Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU)
- University of West Bohemia in Pilsen (atelier ZČU)
- Secondary School of Art and Design in Brno (SŠUD)
The conference ends with a roundtable discussion about the future of game development education in Czechia and GAMEHIGHED's role in it.
This is the first Multiplier Event presenting GAMEHIGHED outcomes to local (national) audiences. Similar events in Poland, Finland and Turkey are coming in the next academic year.
