This webinar was part of our September Speaker Series, recorded in September 2020. These lunchtime sessions aimed to bring together academics, practitioners & policymakers to discuss some of play research’s key issues virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Professor Sara Baker was joined in this webinar by Helen Dodd, Professor of Child Psychology at the University of Reading, and Ana Qvortrup, Professor at the Department for the Study of Culture and Head of the Research Programme for Didactics at the University of Southern Denmark.
They discussed play research and its findings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Professor Qvortrup also spoke about the project “A window of change: transformations of playful learning environments in kindergarten and primary school during and after COVID-19”, funded by The Lego Foundation.
