Description

Class Experience

Over the course of the 5 days we will focus on:
-Creativity and Innovation: Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge and recommend innovative products and processes using technology.
-Learners will identify the building blocks for story development using principles as applied to the gaming industry.
-Learners will learn the foundations of building a believable setting specific for use in writing, video game creation, movies or other forms of fiction. Learners will be able to use worksheets and logical reasoning to create their fictional world and apply that world to other forms of their creation.
As an instructor in business learning, through my day job I utilize gamification theories to create adult learning focusing on communication, empathy, and process based concepts. Game theory in the workplace is stronger now then ever before with the advent of the mobile phone being a driving force behind shorter attention spans in the information age. 
There will be four (4) assignments that the student will need to complete individually and submit through the classroom. These assignments will be based on creating the learners own story with class discussion centered around how to grow these ideas to the next stage of creation.
 4 files available upon enrollment
All handouts will be provided by the instructor Students will view YouTube videos during class for group discussion and to assist learning. Class image used with permission from www.freepik.com Designed by Freepik

About Me

I believe that teaching can be useful but only if it is also fun- boring classes are not allowed and there is nothing worse than being bored (this is why I heavily encourage interaction in e-learning)! 

Expect to enjoy classes about Harry Potter,...
