ProtoTeach - the conference of best practice in games education

This summer Skillset and Abertay University got together to stage a new conference about “best practice in games education” in Edinburgh.
Bev Bush and Rhoda Daly were pleased to attend ProtoTeach and Protoplay -
13-14 August, Edinburgh International Conference centre
(as part of Dare Protoplay student games showcase.)
“ProtoTeach" provided games academics with a valuable opportunity to meet and discuss practical solutions for teaching and collaboration and examined such issues as innovative projects and links with industry. Skillset computer games manager, Saint John Walker lead the event and we found it extremely inspiring and informative.
