The purpose of this one-credit online experiential course is to explore the importance of play in learning. To the observer, students look like they are "just playing", but together we will unravel the big picture to find the underlying learning taking place through play. Participants will acquire tools on how to observe play, while learning techniques to interact and respond to play themes. Attendees will understand concurrently about the rationale behind the importance of play in child development and in education settings, how students use play as part of their social-emotional language and how to effectively observe and respond to messages in play.
This course may not run as scheduled if we do not reach our minimum number of registrations. Should this occur, all registered students will have the option of receiving a full refund OR rolling the registration over into the following semester.
