The Engaged Researcher: Playshop - Devising and Pitching Games Inspired by Academic Research

Fri 22 May 2020


In this hands-on session, we will be working in teams to develop pitches and prototypes for interactive experiences based on our research. You will be guided through the process of ideas generation, modelling, and playtesting, and we will conclude by pitching our game designs to each other. These games can be analogue or digital, and no previous or coding experience is required. However, you must have attended the introduction session ‘Game Changers: Using Game Design to Promote Playful Engagement with Academic Research’.
