Schools and colleges looking to introduce esports to their institution may be put off by the fear of negative parent perceptions surrounding esports and gaming, cost, and impact on academic studies. Exeter College and their ExE Academy seek to dispel those myths. Highlighting their recent collaboration with Lenovo, their case study explores the impact esports is having on students, future careers and surprisingly the business community beyond the college grounds.
This talk will look at perceptions, building an esports suite, the academy model and workplace-ready skills developed as part of an esports programme. If you’re trying to put forward a persuasive argument about the benefits of esports whether in schools or colleges, you may find some hidden gems here.
