The world of esports continues to be a positive disruptor across higher education and shows no sign of slowing down.  

University of Washington’s (UW) Associate Professor of Educational Foundations, Leadership and Policy, Dr. Jennifer Hoffman, joins Baker Tilly’s collegiate athletics and esports practice leaders, Dave Capitano and Adrienne Larmett, in this engaging podcast to explore what institutions should consider as they prepare to launch a new collegiate esports program or enhance their existing program into a more robust one. She discusses the importance of aligning institutional mission and values with collegiate esports, attaining equity and creating a sense of belonging for students.  

Dr. Hoffman also emphasizes the unique role esports plays in creating novel ways of learning in higher education. Listen to how UW’s commitment to being student-centered, their longstanding student gaming culture and the institution’s three pillars – community, career and competition, have all set up the University for esports success.

Plus, Dr. Hoffman reveals three takeaways that can help colleges and universities amplify their esports programs in this dynamic digital space.

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
