Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the various factors that schools consider during the implementation of an esports program. This including budgeting, operations planning, campus operations impact, and student recruitment considerations. Students will also learn about the other factors, such as publisher rights and third-party operators, and how they impact and interact with the scholastic community. 
I have experience designing, implementing and training students and faculty members in scholastic esports business models at the high school and college level. I built the esports program at Assumption University, SPIRE Academy, and have advised multiple other schools and organizations. I am currently the Director of Esports at Merrimack College and teach esports as an Adjunct at Dean College.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
