Nov 13, 2009 (Harrisburg, PA) Save the Date for Harrisburg University of Science and Technology's  Learning and Entertainment Evolution Forum 2010 (LEEF 2010). The interactive professional development event is set for June 17-18, 2010.

The focus for LEEF 2010 is “Games. Simulations. Virtual Worlds.”

“Building on the success of LEEF 2009, this year’s program will further explore the use of games, simulations and virtual worlds for learning and performance by looking at the needs for successful adoption, says  Andy Petroski, Director of Learning Technologies & Assistant Professor of Learning Technologies. 

LEEF 2010 will feature new perspectives from keynote presentations, practical applications and lessons learned from in-depth case study sessions, hands-on play with new and experimental technologies through high-tech demos, focused instructional workshops, one-on-one time with innovators and entrepreneurs in the exhibitors area, and lots of opportunities for networking with a diverse array of attendees.

Early-bird registration will be open from November 15 to December 31.

The University is an ideal host for the forum since it is pursuing innovative approaches to games and learning for performance through its Learning Technologies Master of Science program and its Center for Advanced Entertainment and Learning Technologies.
