Recent years have witnessed a rise in Game Jams - organized events to create playable prototypes in a very short time frame. Game Jams offer a unique and quick way to prototype games. Beyond that, we believe Game Jams can also be seen as a design research method, situated in the research-through-design tradition, to create knowledge in a fast-paced,… (More)
Game Jams - energized, fast-paced get-togethers of developers and artists to make digital games - have recently emerged as a way to generate and inspire novel game ideas and new ways of thinking. We intend to introduce the CHI community to this collaborative, fast-paced method of design by holding a game jam with an emphasis on developing novel user inputs… (More)
It is commonly acknowledged that intrinsically motivated learning makes for better students. Yet, facilitating students to become intrinsically motivated to learn is difficult, if not, impossible to accomplish. As every student has different and personal intrinsic needs, the design of regulations that satisfy intrinsic needs may seem an unfruitful approach… (More)
In most developed and rapidly developing countries, there has been a continual increase in life expectancy primarily due to improvements in public health, nutrition and medicine. However, this is now coupled with aging population demographics and falling birth rates, which when combined, are expected to significantly burden the socioeconomic well-being of… (More)
The study used a research-through-design approach and organized game jams as a method to examine game design processes, with the aim to investigate how the diverse identities of designers affect and inspire their game designs. During the <i>Game [4Diversity] Jam</i>s we hypothesised that homogeneity in groups may lead to a single-minded message in their… (More)

Four case studies are presented to demonstrate the interdisciplinary approach used in management of the ischemic foot. In each case, bypass surgery was used to increase vascularity to the affected limb. This surgical aggressive approach, medical management combined with local wound care, provided a satisfying clinical outcome.
