Help in research about students' gaming experiences

Dear students,

I am a doctoral student at Northeastern University undertaking a research study entitled “Students’ Gaming Experiences and Their Academic Potential: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis”. In this study, I am asking college students, selected through a brief survey pool, to engage in an interview regarding experiences with peak engagement in games and in academic activities.

It is estimated that 5 to 7 students will meet the criteria for inclusion.

I will only include participants who consent to the study, are 18 years old or older, and self-identity as current college students at any American academic institution. Students have no obligation to participate and are free to withdraw at any time. Students’ self-identifying information will not be disclosed in the study.

Although there will be no direct benefit for taking part in the study, the information learned may help educators better understand and promote student engagement.

If you would like to volunteer to participate, or you have any questions about this study, please feel free to contact me at

Thank you,

Sergio Pisano
