  • ATLS 1100 - Design Foundations
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduces foundational principles, practices and methods of design. Emphasizes design as an expressive and creative problem solving tool. This course engages with design from a broad perspective including visual, computational, physical and auditory design practices. Through lectures, discussions and creative projects, students will gain a familiarity with the diverse applications of creative technology through design.
  • ATLS 3200 - Sound
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Summer 2019
    Introduces techniques, technologies and concepts of digital sound through lectures, projects and critiques. Focuses technically on digital sound creation, production, synthesis and interactivity. Explores various approaches to digital sound production through historical and conceptual perspectives. Recommended prerequisite: CSCI 1300.
  • ATLS 4010 - Capstone Projects I
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    The focus of this advanced practicum course is the development of an individual thesis project. Specific class sessions will feature a combination of lectures, demonstrations, guest speakers, lab sessions, and critiques. This course also entails group work, portfolio development, critical theoretical readings, and a significant written component.
  • ATLS 4040 - Game Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
