Chris Filip

£4 for £1: how governments funding innovation leads to incredible returns
As the co-founder of Game Anglia, a UK not-for profit, and the Programme Manager of a creative innovation grant in his day-job at Creative UK, Chris is in a unique position to identify how non-repayable grants (for example, for game jams or game prototypes) enhance innovation and offer actual return-on-investment for the grantors, usually government bodies. In this workshop, Chris will show some real-world results of how grants create commercial innovation and will work with the participants to fill in grant requests that can be used both for EU and non-EU grants.

Workshopping workshop-based courses
In this workshop we will sketch out a course using a field-tested method, suitable for academics and game development educators alike, to create assignments and materials based on a core knowledge analysis to build engaging and efficient courses, both online and offline. The method is partially based on flipped learning.
