Interesting new event coming up at LSBU:

Monday, 4 December 2017 from
12:30 to 14:00 (GMT)

This session will focus on the upsurge in interest in play as part of tertiary study and on the innovative ways play and creativity can permeate learning support, teaching and research. Drawing on numerous theories of play and learning Professor Alison James will share her experiences of teaching playfully in a range of contexts and on her work as an accredited LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Facilitator within the university context. She will also discuss hosting the first Play and Creativity Festival at the University of Winchester in April 2017 and co-editing The Power of Play in HE with Chrissi Nerantzi (MMU). This collection, due for publication by Palgrave McMillan in 2018, brings together play practices and explorations from universities in Europe, the United States and the UK. Through these different aspects of her work Alison challenges the myths that surround play and the misconception that it is trivial or separate from complex activity.

Join us for this event with speaker, Professor Alison James, Professor of Learning and Teaching at the University of Winchester.

Refreshments will be provided, you are also welcome to bring your own.

This event forms part of our ‘CRITical Conversations‘ seminar series run by the Centre for Research Informed Teaching (CRIT) at London South Bank University. Follow the conversation #lsbuCRIT
