The Interactive Narrative Design professorship, which is committed to developing the discipline of narrative designer for digital media, works in the technology research area.
The ‘Virtual making in education’ project is another great example of educational innovation through research. It is a training programme in which lecturers and students create media products in a virtual reality context. This means not only developing new techniques but in particular learning to ask the right educational questions in this new context and to develop teaching methodologies.
The combination of practical research and educational innovation has also led to the construction of ‘black boxes’, workshops for performative media with opportunities to experiment with motion capture, virtual reality and motion sensors. We are also experimenting with existing technology in new contexts, such as sublimation printers, RISO, screen printing, laser cutters, 3D printers and biolabs.
