First week of classes

It’s nearing the end of the first week of classes of this new 2010/11 session. The subjects I’m teaching this semester are:

  1. Computer Games: Design F915 11 & F915 12
  2. Photography: an Introduction DW6c 34
  3. Art & Design: Colour F5CE 12
  4. Design Activity DV38 10
  5. Art & Design: Exploratory Media Handling F5CJ 12
  6. Art & Design: Context DV5R 38
  7. Digital Imaging Project DX33 35

So far there aren’t any subjects that are too challenging or new, apart from Games Design which are brand new units. Most of the subjects are quite practical and can be fun, however Art & Design: Context can be a bit dull as it covers a lot of art and design history and involves quite a lot of research for the students. I’m going to have to look at ways of introducing some practical activities into this class – perhaps getting students to create some computer based artwork in different styles e.g. Pop Art or Art Nouveau.
