Gamasutra is proud to present the fourteenth Gamasutra Podcast, part of our weekly podcasts, which include both the Tom Kim-presented Gamasutra Podcast show, alongside the best lectures, tutorials, and roundtables from this and previous years' Game Developers Conferences. Today's edition of the Gamasutra Podcast is the second part of our roundtable discussion about game education, featuring Dustin Clingman of Full Sail Real World Education, DigiPen's Claude Comair, GameCareerGuide's Beth Aileen Dillon, GameRecruiter's Marc Mencher, Paul Newell, course developer for the Art Institute of Vancouver, Parsons School of Design's Katie Salen, Dr. Peter Raad from the Guildhall at SMU, and USC's Tracy Fullerton. The following passage comes from the show's introduction, as featured in the first part of this podcast: "Often, discussions among game educators are reduced to the question of "how can these institutions better train folks for jobs in the industry." And although this panel did explore that subject, they also discussed the potential limitations of an industry-driven approach. As much as all of the educators on the panel agree that the medium is still emerging and defining what it might become, the field of game studies likewise is only at a nascent stage regarding its potential. Indeed, the point that emerges most strongly is that the field is able to support a range of institutions pursuing a broad spectrum of goals. These educational programs offer real differentiated, and excellent choices for those seeking to pursue studies in game production, design, and theory."
