Game Design in Youth Sports

    Design inclusive and meaningful learning environments

    In this Blended Intensive Programme (BIP), you will take on the challenge of designing and testing innovative variations of Youth Sports and Physical Education activities focusing on inclusive and meaningful learning environments in ball sports.

    The Game Design in Youth Sports is a joint initiative between Windesheim UAS Sports Academy (NL), Youth Sports Innovation Centre (NL), and Dutch Sports federations.

    Teaching and learning

    Our (practical) lectures, master classes, design studios and study group meetings are based on ‘learning by doing’ and the principles of game design.

    In a joint venture with Dutch students, you will test the activities you designed during training at various sports clubs.
