QUT have built a highly successful Esports Arena which hosts not only their own very successful, QUT Tigers, but trains other people and teams, including school teams in the growing esports and gaming industry. The Esports Arena research program is linked to multidisciplinary fields as well as courses at QUT and Industry placement programs. They want schools involved and want teachers to know about the industry, the growing research field and the opportunities for Queensland students. They want teachers to tell students stories about the career paths, the holistic nature and thus broad opportunities of the industry and how to begin the journey. They want both primary and secondary schools to provide learning experiences that open up possibilities for young people and place Esports in their view.
At this special event, prior to the formal AGM, you can visit the arena, participate if you are game, find out about the facility and its research work and join in conversations with people interested in schools’ involvement. The Esports manager Jacob Argent, Researcher Michael Trotter and some teachers will share their experience of the new field.
After the eSports visit attendees will return to P-419 to be addressed by researchers involved in the eSports program.
QSITE will then conduct meeting business with presentation of QSITE Awards and Changes to Constitution. Followed by the Business of the AGM.
