T580 Interactive Storytelling and Computer Games:  The Player/User
as Designer, Author, Creator or Media Maker Professor Andrew
Bucksbarg http://organicode.net/welcome.html

What can storytelling offer for the design of games and interactive
media?

This seminar will approach this question from the perspective that
there is no difference between theory and practice in design- making
is thinking and thinking is making.  The seminar will be structured
like a design workshop, encouraging an open context for
collaborating on design concepts and prototypes that explore
collisions and intersections of story, narrative and dramatic
structure in interactive media.

Project work will include writing, design concepts and documents and
prototypes.  No previous technical knowledge is required.
