Time: 10:30am-12:20pm (online), 2:00-6:30pm in the SRYC mezzanine

IAT 312 students will show­case their final game design projects. Students were tasked to design a (dig­i­tal) boardgame that is not only fun to play, but also "trans­for­ma­tive” or "pur­pose­ful," that is, apart from being fun to play, the game should also be meaningful/purposeful or add value by some­how chang­ing the player’s out-of-game behav­iours or per­spec­tives.  During the course, stu­dents reflected on topics that they care deeply about that could help create a better world, and designed a game to tackle that topic.
