The Universitätsgesellschaft Münster e.V. supports a new project about eSports led by Dr. Till Utesch. The project aims to examine sport psychological and educational perspectives on eSports and (teacher) education. Furthermore, it aims to start a discussion about educational potentials of eSports and to promote the awareness of related risks in university studies. The project continues the idea of the seminar (WS 2018/19) „eSports – Educational potential or health risk?“ (Utesch/Grade). It will be implemented in cooperation with the AStA Sportreferat (Colja Homann, Maximilian Strunk) in 2019.
