The Game Play Design course offered by Aarhus University explores the potentials of games through ‘applied theory’ in the form of hands-on exercises, game prototyping and creating a joint game exhibition at Dokk1 in Aarhus. The course does not require any specific skills besides an interest in games and a desire to play.
The aim of the course is to combine theory and practice in playful and innovative ways in order to rethink the potential of a certain context, approach or setting through game design. The course alternates between teacher-led presentations & workshops (week 1 & 3) and student-driven fieldwork, prototyping and presentations (week 2 & 3). All Game.Play.Design projects are carried out in interdisciplinary groups, put together in such a manner as to amplify the output in both gameplay theorizing and designing.
