The ‘Learn With League’ initiative has been designed and developed by education experts, Ivan Davies and Dr. Kimberly Voll.
Ivan has a background in sports psychology, specialising in group cohesion and collective efficacy. In 2005, he became a Physical Education teacher in the UK, where he delivered lessons for students aged 11–18 years in a co-educational specialist sports college.
During this period, he worked with the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) to carry out two high school investigations on Assessment for Learning. Outside of teaching, Ivan has worked with professional athletes across multiple sports, including esports.
Ivan’s lifelong passion for community has seen him work on significant youth initiatives, a path that lead him to leading Community and Social Play in the Riot Games Sydney office. Ivan now channels his passion for community towards discovering and refining ways to support the League of Legends community in Oceania. When he’s not organising community events, Ivan enjoys spending time with his whānau.
