The final year will start with a research-focussed approach to create an innovative game project proposal that addresses your own critical and contextual concerns. These will be discussed and located through a series of dynamic tutorials, presentations and debates. This material will form the basis for your project proposal.
Looking at the broadest remit of games as social agents you will interrogate, investigate and create a proposal for a project that will be fully realised in the Major Project GDA module. The format of the proposal will be akin to a rich research project proposal. Working through the proposal, you will be able to translate a passion into a solid proposal for a project to be completed in the Major Project GDA module. Utilising all the skills gained in levels 4 and 5 you will synthesize professional level evidence and process documentation communicating this in the proposal. During the module you will have opportunities to work collaboratively or pursue an individual proposal.
Your process documentation and reflective outputs alongside your portfolio of specific assets will be produced in an online format suitable to best communicate your learning, for example as an illustrated blog and the associated materials.
Your portfolio should consist of all studio work developed over the course of the semester, including evidence of workshop and tutorial activities, all sketchbooks, research, annotation and preparatory material alongside outcomes as directed.
