Abstract or description

In this paper we discuss the attitudes to the Global Games Jam, not from the students that do take part – but the ones that don’t. With a successful track record of hosting Global Game Jam locations, at Staffordshire University it has become apparent that the same students attend year on year. This proposed research sets out the setting for Staffordshire University’s game related courses, and the areas that will be addressed by questioning the students that’s don’t attend the 2014 Global Game Jam event.
