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. In this workshop, you will hear from faculty about their experiences incorporating play into their courses, consider how technology can support playful learning, and try your hand at designing some "serious play." You'll also receive a booklet with examples, questions to consider in designing playful learning, and an annotated list of resources.
