Module overview

Building upon the module Professional Contexts, this module features an exciting series of industry speaker events and debates to act as a catalyst to support investigative academic and journalist writing for and about Games. The research and final writing assignments should be directly relevant to your work within the module Major Project GDA.

Within this module you will produce two different pieces of writing inspired by, and in the style of, the MIT Playful Thinking and UAL Spark journal. Your texts will be in the form of an academic journal piece and a summary journalistic piece. The journalistic piece will be the shorter of the two and should engage a wider audience towards concerns and/or commentary on Games Design & Art.
