|Session Name:||Graphics Programming Education: Less Is More|
|Company Name(s):||Champlain College|
|Track / Format:||GDC Education Summit|
|Overview:||In 2010, the graphics programming curriculum at Champlain College was rewritten to better address the needs and expectations of students. The new curriculum introduces advanced graphics topics like the graphics pipeline and GPU coding significantly earlier, but holds back on the specifics of 3D graphics until the students have a solid understanding of the fundamentals. In addition to improved student success rate, Pile will present a variety of other advantages of the curriculum redesign.|
