Event description

Description

Dear PLSIG members,

The next PLSIG live meeting will be held at the University of Leicester, on 3rd-4th May 2018. As ever, all members are warmly welcomed - whether you’re new to the SIG, a veteran, or based in Leicester and interested in finding out about us.

The theme for this meeting will be "playful spaces" - with a range of activities based around the integration of play into campus spaces (and taking learning to new playful spaces). It will be hosted by Alex Moseley, co-Chair of the SIG and Head of Curriculum Enhancement at the University of Leicester, and indeed sees the PLSIG return to the place it first began back in 2010.

The venue is very close to Leicester train station (5 minute walk), and to several suitable hotels. There is travel information here and a map of the campus here [PDF] (2 University Road is at the far left of the map, next to London Road and the Fraser Noble building).

As usual, the event will run from midday on Thursday 3rd, through to the afternoon of Friday 4th. There is no charge, but we ask that members arrange their own transport and accommodation (suggestions below). A sandwich lunch will be provided on arrival, with refreshments throughout.

A draft agenda is outlined below: if you have any examples of practice to share in the 'playtest' section please let us know and/or come along ready to share them.
