Interdisciplinary game projects as a teaching tool can change the way students experience the game development process from the very beginning. In such projects, students can have the opportunity to produce games with people from all different fields and backgrounds such as development professionals, artists, and humanists, and are able to experience the entire development process from many different perspectives. In this talk, Johanna Pirker will discuss interdisciplinary and international course formats, and why these formats will help students create more innovative and creative projects.
The main takeaway will be inspiration to enable more innovative and creative learning processes. Attendees will gain an understanding of techniques and best practices for how to organize such courses to support an innovative and creative project-based learning and development experience for the students.
