This half-day workshop is a follow-up to the one held at the Foundations of Digital Games conference in April 2014. Following that workshop a report was released, including syllabi, course post-mortems and a synthesis of the discussion regarding challenges and opportunities related to teaching game studies courses. This workshop continues that discussion and focuses on the following:
*Sharing additional course experiences with new participants
*In-depth discussion of a variety of assignments and their structure
*Future projects or activities (creation of a network; special journal issue; book; more white-papers; etc.)
*Other topics as desired by participants
