The 2019 FDG Game Educators’ Symposium (GESym) aims to gather and support game educators at Foundations of Digital Games. GESym is a full-day, non-archival workshop and we accept simple abstract submissions on a variety of topics (see the Call for Papers for more detail). Our workshop format is highly interactive and focuses on the exchange of practical solutions to big problems. We are also running a model assignment track to provide an ongoing repository of resources for game educators. We believe that everyone benefits by drawing together both game educators who may not typically attend FDG and game scholars at FDG who might not typically attend pedagogical development conferences.

The organizers of the GESym workshop at Foundation of Digital Games 2019 affirm FDG’s Statement of Values: a commitment to scholarly integrity, collegiality and professionalism, and inclusivity towards scholars of all backgrounds.
