-The term will consist of three major events. On “Pitch Day” (Monday Nov. 30, 10:00-12:00), each student team will present their game idea to the class and receive feedback from a panel of judges. On “Prototype Day” (Monday Dec. 7, morning), each student team will conduct an evaluation of a working prototype of their interactive experience with their peers as test participants.  On “Demo Day” (Tuesday Dec. 15, evening), each student team will present their finished demo and run a station where guests can play their game.+The term will consist of three major events.

 +=====Attendance======
 +
 +Please note that attendance during both morning and afternoon sessions is required (LHÍ students with conflicts on Tue and Wed mornings are excused for those sessions). Please inform the instructors if this is hard for you for some reason, such as scheduling conflicts or sick leave.
 +
 +=====Participation Grade=====
 +
 +Participation grade will be based on attendance in the afternoons. To the extent possible, this will also be based on how actively the student participates in in-class discussion (based on the instructors' subjective assessment).
 +
 +The base participation grade will be calculated as 15 * (proportion of afternoons attended). The instructors can then add possible bonus points to this base grade based on a subjective evaluation of the student's participation throughout the semester (into which class discussions may factor). 
 +
 +=====Grading=====
 +
 +For RU students, the table below will be used to calculate 100% of their grade for the 3-week course. For LHÍ students, the table below will be used to calculate a portion of the grade for their 5-week course at LHÍ.
