The Hunter College Film and Media Studies Department is searching for an instructor to teach the undergraduate Fall 2011 Concepts in Gaming course.
This course surveys the historical basis of and current practices in game design, which is phase one of game development. Just as a study of rhetoric and persuasive argument lays the foundation for effective written communication, the study of game design lays the foundation for an equally effective digital communication. While the structure of games may seem like a small fraction of interactive design, the concepts related in this class should prove fundamental to your ability to design any interactive experience from a simple website to a MMORPG.
This course will take place on Fridays from 2:10 - 5pm and will begin on August 26 through December 22nd, a 14 week semester with a final exam meeting. 
Applicants should have an MA or MFA and previous college level teaching experience.  Please send a CV and relevant urls to:rmira@hunter.cuny.edu
