Each webinar features authors from two special issues of the Journal of Play in Adulthood edited by CHEF-boardmember Rikke Toft Nørgård and Dr. Alex Moseley. The first special issue on ‘The Playful Academic’ is already out, while the second special issue ‘Design(s) for Playful Learning’ will be out next month – you can find the special issues and the speakers’ articles here:
