Play based learning and intentional teaching
Play based learning is a context for engagement that allows us to nurture children’s creativity and promote their sense of agency. We will acknowledge the stages of play and the role of the educator in play, explore the opportunities for play based learning within your context, identify strategies for intentional teaching or intentionality within your own pedagogy and consider ways to nurture children’s creativity and learning dispositions.
