The IMGD Seminar

Interactive Media and Game Development

Fall 2009


Home Schedule Hotlinks

The Interactive Media and Game Development (IMGD) seminar is a weekly meeting on topics of interest to IMGD. Some weeks, we have an outside speaker from industry that will be talking on an IMGD topic. These sessions will be presentation-type events, and open to the general public. Other weeks, we have IMGD faculty lead informal discussions about IMGD syllabi, text books, class projects and more. These sessions may have presentations but will be less formal, conducive for discussions.
