The Role of Play in Learning with Technology


From Plato and Piaget to the current day, scholars have noted the critical role of play in learning. Yet the concept of playful learning still encounters significant resistance in higher education. Designing playful learning is a deceptively challenging task, one that requires a sophisticated understanding of play itself. This web seminar will provide participants with:

  • Theoretical frameworks and resources to inform your thinking on the role of play in learning
  • Examples of faculty-developed play-based learning experiences
  • Faculty quotes about the impact of these experiences on student learning
  • Recommendations and guiding questions designed to help you develop successful play-based learning experiences on your campus
