Discussion: Formal Education in Videogame Development

New Synagogue: Bar

Theres increasing emphasis on the creative industry and its support, but formal digital game development education has lagged behind. Central European universities have been slow to reflect market needs: why are our colleges blind to such education, how can we change this, and what initiatives have already been carried out?

These topics will be discussed by Adam Wojciechowski (PL, Technical University of Lodz), Tamás Liszka (HU, Budapest Metropolitan University), Andrej Sýkora (CZ, Academy of Performing Arts in Prague), Lucia Šicková (SK, Pixel Federation), Michal Ferko (SK, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava), and Ján Šicko (SK, Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava).
