Panel: “Positive Values of Esports”

Distinguished guests in the business and study of esports will discuss the topic the “Positive Values of Esports” — what we think these values might be and how we can encourage them in our esports games, competitions, and communities.

Scot Osterweil, Creative Director of the MIT Game Lab and Education Arcade, will facilitate a discussion on stage with TL Taylor, Professor of Comparative Media Studies, MIT, and our guests:

  • Mars Hou, Vice General Manager, Marketing, Tencent Interactive Entertainment
  • Sage Huang, General Manager, Product Department of League of Legends
  • John Lasker, Vice President, Digital Media Programming, ESPN
  • Lu Jingchao, Dean of Announcing & Hosting Art, Communication University of China

We invite the general public to come listen to this discussion and think about what we can do as players, tournament organizers, community members, game developers, broadcasters, commentators, and publishers to support social values in esports.
