Professional Development Around Gaming

Can’t make it to the Games, Learning & Libraries Symposium in Oak Brook IL Nov 2-4, 2008? Chances are, some of the content will be posted online; watch this blog for session notes, and the ALA Techsource site [inactive] for slides and handouts.  If you are in the southwest, try to get to Chris Castaldi’s session Discover Gaming for an overview of game history and design.  It takes place November 14 from 1-3 pm in room 206/207 at the University of Advancing Technology, in Tempe AZ. Register online [inactive]!  Registration is now open for the 2009 Game Developer’s Conference, to be held in San Francisco CA from March 23-27, 2009. Try a do-it-yourself online session, that’s part of AZ’s version of 23 things called a Baker’s Dozen. Section #10 is Online Gaming [inactive], authored by Liz Danforth, one of the experts on our grant panel.  Lastly, watch for online gaming classes from Infopeople and YALSA in 2009.
