Playful Learning in Higher education – a need for new concepts
Based on the research project Playful Learning Research Extension this presentation will explore the concept of “play qualities” as a way to conceptualize play practices in higher education. The exploration of the concept will have two foci: First, play qualities are related to the acting, which means specific doings in learning processes. Second, those qualities are always qualities to somebody who are involved in the doings in learning processes. With the concept of play qualities as a way to design and understand play pedagogy within higher education, the potential of not polarize play and learning in unfruitful way is present, just as the possibility of creating a vocabulary which makes sense to the practices, which we want to design for and develop in higher education.
