It incorporates elements like wonder, curiosity, joy, knowledge, imagination, interaction, risk, time, reflection, and listening into the educational process.
Key Features of the Study:

Study Guides: Participants will receive study resources to enhance their learning and engagement throughout the series.

Explore a Play-Responsive Lens: Discover how to apply this approach across various educational methods and contexts.

Foster Lifelong Learning: Learn how to create inclusive play experiences that not only support but also advance learning and development in natural and joyful ways.

Guest Appearance: Weโ€™re excited to confirm a guest virtual appearance by Suzanne Axelsson to add diverse perspectives to the discussion. Date: TBA
