Call for sessions now open for the Playful Learning Conference, July 8-10 2020

The Playful Learning conferencepitched at the intersection of learning, research and play for adults – returns to the University this year after a highly successful 2019 conference that saw 120 researchers, practitioners and students turn Stamford Court into a playful space for three days last summer.

Playful in approach and outlook, yet underpinned by robust research and working practices, we provide a space where teachers, researchers and students can play, learn and think together. A space to meet other playful people and be inspired by talks, workshops, activities and events. In its base at the University of Leicester, we have spaces that open the programme up to both indoor and outdoor activities, and evening activities that continue the playful learning and conversations after the formal programme ends.

The call for sessions is now open for 2020, and we warmly invite submissions from University of Leicester staff and students. We are open to everyone who has something to say, present, create or think about – regardless of background or experience.
