Playful Learning – a conference with a difference!

Playful Learning is back for its second play-filled year and you have until Friday 23rd June to book your place!

Taking place between 12th – 14th July, the Playful Learning conference 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 provide 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, we also 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. We are also looking at ways to be more ethical in approach – so this year, we are focussed on reducing our carbon footprint: we will be rewarding attendees who arrive by public transport, foot or bike; and all of our food will be vegetarian.

You can see the full conference programme here.

Who is it for?

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.

Book your place here before registration closes on the 23rd June.
