This course provides students with a sound introduction to the psychological and behavioral theories of entertainment media with the goal of implementing these theories to the future design and evaluation of games for change. It focuses more on the psychological, behavioral, and social aspects of video games than on pure technical aspects. It will be organized around a collection of selected readings and real-world games and discussions. The final project will be based on reflective thinking, critical evaluation, and creative application.
