Lifelong learning is critical to professional and personal success. But for many adults this can be a challenge. As we get older, lots of things get in the way of learning new things — embarrassment, fear of making change, resistance to asking for help, and most of all, a lack of playfulness in our learning environments. But new discoveries reveal that playfulness, spontaneity, creativity, performance, and pointless conversation are critical for learning across the lifespan. In this workshop, Carrie Lobman — who has made learning a more joyous experience for thousands of adults — will help participants put play, fun and creativity front and center in even the most serious learning challenges.
Carrie Lobman is director of pedagogy at the East Side Institute, the founder of the Institute’s Developing Teachers Fellowship Program and associate professor at the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education. She is co-author of Unscripted Learning: Using Improvisation Across the K-8 Curriculum and a frequent presenter at professional conferences on learning, development and play, including meetings of the American Educational Research Association, the Association for the Study of Play and the International Society for Cultural and Activity Research.
