Sept. 24, 2010 - PRLog -- The impact of games, simulations and virtual worlds on work and education is the theme for the 2011 Learning and Entertainment Evolution Forum (LEEF), which is scheduled to occur June 16-17 at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Pennsylvania. LEEF 2011 will explore the use of games, simulations and virtual worlds and how these new approaches for learning can change the way organizations consider and engage in work and education.

Organized by the 2010 Technology Educator of the Year and Harrisburg University faculty member, Andy Petroski, the University has become the ideal host for the annual 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.

Using case studies, exhibits, keynotes and other hands-on learning opportunities, the annual LEEF event showcases how games, simulations and virtual worlds are used  from leadership and program management, to emergency evacuation or electrical safety.   Attendees at past LEEF events enjoyed presentations of case studies from IBM, DAU, Applied Research Associates, Forio, the US Naval Academy, Centrax, Novonics and others who are overcoming challenges and implementing effective solutions with games, sims and virtual worlds!

Additionally, LEEF 2011 is expected to feature 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.

The annual event is ideal for training and development professionals,  e-learning designers and developers, educators and instructors, and game designers and developers.
