Course aim

The purpose is to gain insight into being able to discuss, critically reflect and productively apply humanistic subject traditions into one’s own competences, in order to strengthen them in relation to digital games as a phenomenon, praxis and design. By doing so, it brings into play the particular humanistic, theoretical, analytical, methodological and product-oriented subject competences, which the individual student possesses and in the process also helps the entire group, in addition to it developing and highlighting one’s own competences.
