Events and Workshops

You’re invited! Professional development for a playful classroom.

Join Playful Learning events across the US, where teachers, students, designers and researchers come together to explore game-based learning.

Run by experienced educators, game developers and academics, our hands-on workshops demonstrate the link between play and learning, and explore free tools that help educators find and use games effectively.

Most of our professional development events are available at low or no cost.
