Hands-on: Group Assignments


Admission requirements

Not applicable


During 6 weeks, under the guidance of one of the teachers, groups of students will dedicate themselves to a creative and reflective assignment that builds on the earlier courses. The result will be a game prototype. They will also produce a theoretically sound reflection on their aims and accomplishments, and the (digital) results of their shared work.
