Cheers for the update, Destructor!!!

I was on the panel that externally assessed the Carlow course… all we were allowed to do was make recommendations as to the balance between course content, what should be covered and what shouldn’t, etc. We had no power of veto or anything like that

the panel made several suggestions regarding the large (and obvious) amount of old CS course content that was being carried across to the new games-specific curriculum that was simply not relevant. We also pointed out that with no industry experienced staff to teach the course, they would need to rely on guest speakers. It looks like much of that advice has been ignored…

Having said that, I still think the Carlow course is second only to Letterkenny’s in being responsive to industry needs and in being a suitably tailored course. That’s a personal opinion, of course.
