The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has launched a new Game Education Special Interest Group (SIG) to enhance the education of future and current game developers. Headed up by Susan Gold, Assistant Professor of Science & Technology, Digital Arts at Sierra Nevada College, the Education SIG started its renewal in early June with numerous initiatives underway: - Updating and maintaining the IGDA’s Curriculum Framework - Creating an educator’s knowledge base - Implementing an internship clearinghouse - Renovating the "Breaking In" web resources for high school students The SIG will also oversee content for education related sessions at industry events such as the Game Developers Conference and conduct extensive international outreach to ensure a global perspective. The Education SIG is encouraging academics involved in game education and training, as well as industry professionals interested in providing guidance and support, to contact the SIG and get involved in the various initiatives.
