Playful Learning is pitched at the intersection of learning and play for adults. Playful in approach and outlook, yet underpinned by robust research and working practices, we provided a space where teachers, researchers and students could play, learn and think together. A space to meet other playful people and be inspired by talks, workshops, activities and events. Based in the heart of Manchester, the event will explore some of the city’s playful spaces with evening activities continuing the fun and conversations after the formal programme ends.
Playful learning is now in its second year after a successful and playful 2016, and aims to be just as playful, and just as relevant in the sector, as the first. This year, the event will focus on reducing our carbon footprint: attendees who arrive by public transport, foot or bike will be rewarded; and all of the food served will be vegetarian.
Who should attend?
Higher and Further Education teachers, researchers, trainers and students; library, museum and local government education officers; workplace trainers; educational designers; learning technologists; in fact anyone involved in adult learning who has an interest in engaging people through play.
