What’s coming up this year, you ask?

  • [update: this event has been postponed] The next PLA in-person meet up is in a few weeks time on 26/27 March at City University, London on the theme of Playfulness at Work. The event will run from lunchtime on Thursday 26th until lunchtime on Friday 27th. There are 8 spots remaining if you want to join us – Book Now!
  • July 8th – 10th is the 2020 Playful Learning Conference, at the University of Leicester – thanks to all of you who have offered sessions. Registration is still available at bargain Early Bird rates until the end of March – and think about students of yours who might want to go: there are special rates for them.
  • The European Conference on Games Based Learning (ECGBL) is in the UK this year. If you fancy a trip to Brighton in late September, do check it out and note the call for papers closes this Wednesday so be quick!

What’s going on with you?

This round-up comes out during the first week of each month. If there is any playful activity/event/book/idea you’d like to promote to members in April, then email Katie Piatt or tweet #PlayLearn and we’ll include it!
