GLSIG/PLSIG Meeting Nov 2016
Dear GLSIG members,
Firstly, we’ll come in again:
Dear PLSIG members, (as we are relaunching the SIG as the Playful Learning SIG after a majority vote from our members).
The next PLSIG live meeting will be the first to be held in London, on 17th-18th November 2016, centred around "Playful cultures, Play in the workplace". As ever, all members are welcome - whether you’re new to the SIG or a veteran.
It will be hosted by Giskin Day of Imperial College, at their South Kensington campus in the Royal School of Mines, room RSM 3.01E. There is travel information here a map of the campus here (RSM is building 12 on the map).
As usual, the event will run from midday on Thursday 17th, through to the afternoon of Friday 18th. There is no charge, but we ask that members sort out their own transport and accommodation (suggestions below). A sandwich lunch will be provided on both days, with refreshments throughout.
A draft agenda is outlined below: if you have any examples of practice to share in the 'playful workplace' section please come along ready to share them.

A Miss Sally Forth has been in touch about enlisting our help to recover an object that disappeared during the Hatton Garden jewellry heist. It's all a very hush-hush. If you want to pit your wits against a master criminal, sign up for either Wednesday afternoon or Friday afternoon when you book, and await further instructions.
Discounted hotel bookings can be made through this link: http://www.imperial.ac.uk/visitors-accommodation/local-hotels/.
...although of course London offers a huge range of options to suit any budgets, with easy tube links to South Kensington from most areas.
We look forward to seeing many of you there!
