COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Given the overwhelming popularity of video gaming, the rise of esports isn't surprising, and many schools are now embracing structured esports programs as an alternative or in addition to traditional sports. School administrators recognize that students can learn the same types of lessons from competitive video gaming as they would learn in traditional sports. Esports programs can help build a sense of belonging, promote collaboration and communication skills, and foster good sportsmanship and improved social behavior, while also creating a pipeline for future STEM careers and furthering students' strategic thinking and problem-solving abilities. Intentionally designed esports spaces have the ability to improve the physical, emotional, and social well-being of occupants and users!

In the following CEU, participants will learn the benefits of esports and delve into what you’ll need to design an effective high functioning winning esports lab for the greatest social-emotional and academic outcomes. This course will recognize the diversity of adult learners and learning experiences will be delivered through whole group instruction, collaborative discussions, and visual assets.
