My Courses

MTEC 3140 – Topics & Perspectives in Emerging Technology

MTEC 3140 – Topics & Perspectives in Emerging Technology

This course is about understanding our role in both the propagation and dismantling of societal values through media production and consumption. It is also about recognizing the power and responsibility we each have as creators and consumers of media and technology to make sure we are building the future that aligns with the world we want to see.

CST 1101: Problem Solving with Computer Programming

CST 1101: Problem Solving with Computer Programming

This course introduces students to concepts of problem solving using constructs of logic inherent in computer programming languages. Students study the nature of problems, common solution approaches and analysis techniques. Students use a flowchart interpreter to diagram problem solutions. Students learn the basics of computer programming by learning Python 2.7. Both Python scripts and flowcharts enable students to construct solutions to common algorithmic problems. The major emphasis is on teaching the student to identify solutions to a problem and translate them into various forms that will enable the computer to perform some of the steps in a solution of an actual problem instance. These forms include flowcharting tool, viewing generated software code and the basics of debugging the code.

ENT3320 OL61

ENT3320 OL61

Supervised laboratory in the technical areas of production. Hands-on experience in the planning, construction, rigging and running of productions to learn backstage procedures and operations in a performance situation. Emphasis placed on careful pre-planning, appropriate safety procedures, and on follow-up critiques and evaluation of the work done.

MTEC 2210 Game Design and Interactive, SP2020

MTEC 2210 Game Design and Interactive, SP2020

This course offers a cross-disciplinary foundation for the design of games and interactive multi-media technology for artists, designers and technologists. Students will learn human-centered design principles and apply these methodologies to collaborative team-based projects across web, mobile and games. Using case studies, brainstorming processes, and rapid analog and digital prototyping, students learn design thinking and problem-solving techniques to enhance usability, incorporate sensory experience, influence perception, increase appeal, and make more effective interactive design decisions.

MTEC1102, Section E988, Production Practices, SP2020

MTEC1102, Section E988, Production Practices, SP2020

This course is a hands-on introduction to the best practices for production techniques used in games, interactive and tangible media product development. Students will acquire a deep understanding of content generation, technology pipeline and delivery systems for creating web, mobile, games, virtual & augmented reality, interactive installation and museum display, wearables and physical computing. Students will learn the roles and responsibilities, build the skills for each role, as well as apply the design and development processes for each medium. They will be introduced to design thinking and rapid prototyping techniques, as well the green light process essential to bringing a product to market. The structure of this course emphasizes an integrated and multi-modal approach to game design, interactive media and physical computing with modeled instruction and practice in the technical aspects of production.

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

A space to create & playtest digital experiences. Come make video games, immersive art, AR filters, websites, and literally anything else you can think of— every other Thursday @ 1-2pm. If it’s creative + involves tech, we’ll do it. (We’re 100% online for Fall 2020! Meet us on Discord: https://discord.gg/sQUjMN6) Every 2 weeks, we pick a new topic (apps, environment art, interactive fiction, 3D modeling…) and challenge you to make a mini project on it. Each one comes with tutorials, inspiration & download links— so you don’t need any experience to join. Find your dream role, have a support system for when you get stuck, team up w/ other students for passion projects, or just try something new. Check out our website for free assets, example code, scholarships, jobs, and more :)
