This blog will live at the convergence of game design, instructional design and academia. I am writing for you if you are a:
- Game industry professional who is curious about what it would be like to teach
- Game design student who wants to see what goes on behind the scenes of your classes
- Teacher or Professor who is teaching game design, or is curious about how to apply game design skills to improve your classee in an entirely different field
As long as I'm talking about what this blog is, I should also mention what it isn't:
It is not about game studies. Game studies is a wonderful field dedicated to studying the relationship between games and culture, which I am not a part of. I deal with game design: the art and science of making games that are fun.
And for anyone taking my courses, it is not about sucking up for a better grade. :-)
If you're still interested, sit back and make yourself at home. Maybe we can learn something together.
