Team based learning has been a significant component of games design/art and programming courses at the University of Huddersfield, but not without challenges. A solution that maintains the benefits of team based learning while solving some of the challenges was sought. Game Jams are a popular method for rapid game development. The Game Jam idea is refined for the higher education sector and details presented, with positive results mostly focused on student engagement but also includes more achievable scoping and improved communication.
