HNC/D Computer Games Development

Running in parallel with developments at NQ level, we are also producing Level 7 (HNC) and Level 8 (HND) awards in Computer Games Development. This project has been running since last January and we hope to have the new awards available to centres from January 2010.

The development team, led by Tony Gurney, are busy writing units right now, and we had a meeting this morning to discuss progress and review the draft units. We hope to have complete draft units available by the end of this month (August) and the units finalised and on the system by the end of October.

We had an interesting discussion today about minimising the time spent on assessment and using digital (rather than paper) forms of assessment whenever possible. I am regularly told that students spend too much time on assessment and this detracts from their enjoyment of the subject. So, here's hoping, we manage to keep assessment to a minimum and to make it as engaging as possible.
