The Talking Play Tour is a conversation-rich event focusing on Playful Learning hosted by early learning speakers/authors Lisa Murphy, Dan Hodgins, and Jeff A Johnson.
Playful Learning is a big topic full of nuance.
Lisa, Dan and Jeff will share the stage and facilitate conversation with a goal of focusing on topics of interest suggested by the people in attendance.
To foster reflection, conversation, and the building of peer relationships, we've scheduled blocks of small group time. In our experience, big insights are often unearthed during little conversations away from the lecture hall and featured speakers. We expect attendees to take advantage of this time and the opportunity to learn from others as well as share their wisdom.
Participants will deepen their understanding of Playful Learning
Participants will reflect on their needs, expectations, and beliefs in relation to Playful Learning.
Participants will consider ways to improve their professional practices regarding Playful Learning.
