|Session Name:||How a Group of Academics Came Together to Improve Ireland's Institutions & Industry|
|Company Name(s):||UC Santa Cruz/Romero Games|
|Track / Format:||GDC Education Summit|
|Overview:||In 2014, seven institutions of higher education in Ireland came together to improve their game curriculum and industry in a novel way. They applied for and won a Fulbright Scholar grant, and together with the support of the Irish game industry, the Higher Education Authority and Irish and US governments, they embarked upon a journey to improve Ireland's standing and competitiveness on a national and worldwide stage. This talk explores how they got the Fulbright Scholar assignment, what the goals for the institutions were, whether or not those goals were met and how other institutions might go about doing something similar.|
