Play, Learning for Life

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    The ‘outcome-based’ learning that has been promoted by many Western governments over the past 25 years is not in tune with current biopsychological theory relating to the way that human beings (and other primates) learn best. This lecture will explain in easily accessible terms what we know about the way people learn, and how we might help people to learn better if we turned away from outcome auditing attitudesto teaching and learning, and engaged in promoting ‘play for productivity.’
