Students will learn to critically evaluate contemporary game design and to propose and construct strategic, interactive, energetic, and visually imaginative design solutions that meet best-practice to consider site, audience, navigation, structure, and engagement. Teamwork and the evaluation of professional contexts, collaboration and communication strategies will support this outcome-based unit.
