Development of Academic Programs:

At CUT (due to being a new university) all members of the department actively participated in the design and development of its Bachelor degree programs. During 2009-2012 as head of department I coordinated the annual revision of the program.  This task is now handled by the departmental undergraduate studies committee.

At Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) in collaboration with other colleagues from the Department proposed and developed two Master level programs

  • MA in Interactive Multimedia (started being offered in September 2011)
  • MSc in Design and Development of Computer Game and Interactive Technologies (started being offered in September 2012)

I am the course director for the MA in Interactive Multimedia and was the course director for the MSc in Design and Development of Computer Game and Interactive Technologies in 2012.

The MA in Design and Development of Computer Game and Interactive Technologies is unique in that it is both the first Master level course on Game Design and Development in Cyprus and it was the first master that was offered in collaboration between two state universities in Cyprus (the University of Cyprus and the Cyprus University of Technology).

At City University London I proposed and developed a new MSc in Human Centred Systems (HCS) which started in October 2004 and I was the course director of that course in 2006. The master is at the moment one of the most popular masters in this area in UK.  As course director I was responsible for the Curriculum development of the course and my role included:

  • Curriculum Development Team co-ordination
  • Course Document preparation
  • Boards of Studies liaison for course approval
  • Course proposal presentation to the Courses Committee
  • Planning the future academic direction of the course
  • As applicable, updating of the course content, aims and objectives
  • Preparation of amendments to the course
  • Liaison with other Boards of Studies for amendments/course review
  • Course handbook preparation and annual updating

In addition, in the last fifteen years I have developed and maintain a course for teaching modern Greek online. The Learn Greek Online (http://www.kypros.org/Greek/) course consists of 105 fully developed lessons designed using a novel participatory design methodology and it currently has over 100,000 students.  The project has been showcased in the public press in Cyprus and the findings have been presented in numerous conferences and other publications.
