Thirteen members of the Edu4Games project team, teachers of the Academy of Dramatic Art, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, School of Design at the Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Organization and Informatics and Academy of Fine Arts, participated in a training led by game development studio Gamechuck from February 24 to March 9, 2021. The aim of the training was to acquaint teachers with the process of working in a company that deals with video games design and development.

During this 10-day training, teachers monitored and participated in the development of a game titled Dingo, which was developed by visual artist Jurica Cvetko and programmer Krunoslav Gregorec. Additional help was provided by Matija Malatestinić (music and sound) and Aleksandar Gavrilović (production). The following were some of their tasks: drawing and animating the dingo character and backgrounds, game programming, creating simple music and a few sound effects, and checking and testing the game. In addition to live participation, teachers followed the game's development via Clickup, Twitch and Discord platforms.

*The training was funded within the project 'Edu4Games - Creation of standards of professions and qualifications as well as new study programs for the area of design and development of video games', created by the Academy of Dramatic Art in collaboration with partners, constituents of the University of Zagreb - Academy of Fine Arts, Faculty of Architecture - School of Design, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing and Faculty of Organization and Informatics.
