RIT and University of Paderborn delivered a "Faculty-Led" study abroad program for RIT students in the summer of 2014 and a visit to the U.S. for the Paderborn students in the Fall of 2015. Students attended lectures or classes, visited The Strong National Museum of Play and the Computerspielemuseum and game studios like Ubisoft's BlueByte and Activision's Vicarious Visions. They also visited Parliament to discuss German game/entertainment law and Sesame Workshop to learn about the educational market.
This session will cover what a "Faculty-Led" program is, the experience for the students and what goes into creating a "Faculty-Led" experience.
