Chris “Doc” Haskell

Director of Esports, Department of Educational Technology, Boise State University

Dr. Chris Haskell plays video games for a living, or at least that’s what his friends think. He’s the director of Varsity Esports at Boise State. As a professor and researcher, Chris also focuses on the impact of video games, virtual worlds, social media, and digital culture. Chris teaches classes in Minecraft and World of Warcraft. He created a course about Facebook, Youtube, and memes. He even has retro 80’s arcade games in his office… for research of course. When it comes to work, Dr. Haskell is serious about play.
