This unit focuses on play as integral to learning processes and therefore its part in pedagogical approaches and curriculum frameworks. Preservice teachers will extend their understanding of play, integrating knowledge and evidence from several disciplines including but not limited to psychology, neuroscience, human development and education. Learning activities will engage preservice teachers to apply their understanding to contemporary issues and the context of play as a dynamic and social construct, and to critically analyse play as a medium for development and learning.
