Playful Learning, Manchester, 13-15 July 2016 | ARCHIVE (2017 site here)

Playful Learning 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 provided 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 explored some of the city’s playful spaces with evening activities continuing the fun and conversations after the formal programme ended.

Playful Learning 2016 ran over three days, from lunchtime on Wed 13 July 2016 to lunchtime on Friday 15 July 2016. Reflections and details of the conference are below.

Playful Learning 17 will run 12-14th July 2017: use the main navigation above to access current information.
