If you’re wondering whatever or not we are still alive, here’s your answer: we are but we’ve been very very very busy. Why are we busy? well … because we started to teach in Steinkjer, Norway at HiNT 😀
We are teaching “Design and Animation for Games and Media”, we have 60 students, course on Monday’s, labs 2 times a week and, of course, homeworks . We are busy building up the course from scratch and while doing it we’re very excited to be given this chance to share some of our experience.
They have two Bachelor’s programs here (Multimedia Technology and Games) at HiNT and we are teaching the 1st year students all about design and animation. As I was saying, the course is kind of intense, there’s a lot of ground to be covered in little time and, on top of that, we also need to learn them programs like Photoshop and Flash. And because we needed to draw a lot, we also had fun organizing a 2 drawing workshops where coffee and cake were the main ingredients (see the pictures below) :))
It’s been a very interesting ride so far, we learned a lot about teaching in general but also about how a Norwegian gaming and animation school is organized. The students are amazing and we appreciate them waking up and joining our course every Monday at 8AM
