Peer to Peer Play and Learning

I ran a program at the LEGO Foundation called Learning Learning Through Play Through Learning Through Play. The program was designed to give my colleagues an embodied sense of what learning through play feels like through experiences of play and interest-driven exploration, so that their work in program design, grant management, and policy advising cold be informed by those experiences of play.

The initiative started in the form of monthly Open Space sessions where colleagues were invited to host sessions on any topic they found interesting and relevant. In a workplace of highly professional and career focused people, spending work-time playing with shadows and circuitry could be difficult. I pushed this feeling, bringing colleagues mushroom hunting in the woods after one of them voiced an interest in mycology.
