|Company Name(s):||University of Waterloo|

|Overview:||How do you teach students about sound design for games when they only get a few classes on the subject? How can game instructors learn enough about sound design to be able to teach it? What kinds of exercises can help a student to rapidly develop skills in sound for games? Designed for a full, 12-week course, but adaptable for shorter courses, the exercises and examples introduced in this lecture teach students about the functions of sound in games through hands-on, creative practice. The exercises teach listening, spotting, recording, editing, creative design, mixing, Foley, and more!|
