The course will include lectures, discussions, group-work, exercises, game-lab sessions and a written project. The project hand-in will determine the final grade for the course.
The course will be assessed and graded based on a term paper. As the paper is the sole basis for grading, it cannot be done in groups. The topic is chosen by the student (in consultation with course manager and TAs) based on the course content, i.e. it must relate thematically to at least one of the topics covered in class and incorporate at least one of the texts on the reading list. The term paper has to be academic in style, approach, and execution, and include botha bibliography and a ludography (preferably in APA style). The length should be roughly (+/-10%) 15 standard pages or 36.000 characters including spaces.
