The Playful Academic: An editorial

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearch

DOI

The contributions on this special issue tackle head on the theme of playful higher education and the playful academic in multifaceted, diverse, but complementary, ways. As a whole they present a polyphonic and kaleidoscopic approach to playful academia and the playful academic: Playfulness as academic practice (James), playful educational experiences (Møller & Skov), playful research methods and practices (Lübbbert, González-Fernández & Heimann), teachers as playful academics (Dean & Parson), playful research (Hunsinger) and a philosophical approach to academia as a plaything (Linde). Together they represent important steps towards a more robust theoretical and methodological underpinnings of this nascent field as well as great hope for a more playful future for academics and institutions alike.
