The Value of Play

Following on from The Power of Play I have now embarked on a new line of enquiry about play in HE. I’m calling it The Value of Play, and it does three things; it extends exploration of the use of play in HE, it investigates beliefs about value, and it focusses specifically on play in management education at university.  At some point I hope to give it a jolly logo, but am rubbish at coming up with this sort of thing.So for now you will have to have the simple text version to tell you a bit more about it. I am delighted and grateful to have been funded by the Imagination Foundation Laboratory, without whose help this two year venture would not be possible.

Through the links below you can access initial project documentation and also – launched January 25th 2020 – a link to an online survey gathering perceptions of play.
