Networking and Peer Learning
Making connections is a critical benefit of professional development events and LEEF provides an inviting and effective environment for developing new relationships with peers and industry experts! The program brings together a diverse array of learning leaders, entertainment developers, designers of leading-edge technologies, educators, business decision-makers, creative entrepreneurs and researchers!
We intentionally integrate great networking opportunities throughout the program. These include social activities such as a cocktail reception and coordinated dinner outing—Night-Out on Restaurant Row, breakfast, lunch and breaks; as well as a highly interative design for sessions, an alternate reality game, and a general atmosphere of sociability which all contribute to wonderful opportunities to connect with other attendees.
LEEF provides two-full days of programming, with extensive opportunities to connect with peers and presenters, including newly added Keynote Speaker Jam Session -a meet and greet after the keynote talk, and the Serious Games Case Study Arcade – hands-on time with the games, sims and VWs facilitated by their developers and/or designers.
LEEF was an interactive professional development event that explored the use of games, simulations and virtual worlds for learning. The program showcased how learning and entertainment technologies have converged, and continue to evolve, to produce new, immersive solutions that are redefining the learning experience.
