This study unit introduces the student to the field of Creative Technology and the first experience with project work in this curriculum.

During a series of lectures and workshops we will cover various topics from Creative Technology as field and as curriculum. We will talk about the process of creation, about users, society, and impact, and discuss various aspects of being a Creative Technology professional.

Furthermore, this study unit covers various angles into collaboration, professional roles one can take, and issues of intercultural communication.

Finally, this study unit also involves the group project of the module, in which participants have to collaborate to make an interactive video, in project groups of approximately five persons. To support this, there are lectures, tutorials, and feedback sessions concerning storytelling and scripts as well as working with video and cameras.
