Global education expert Professor Pasi Sahlberg explores the true impact of ‘play’ in learning environments. Though often considered a non-essential indulgence prioritised beneath scripted teaching and standardised testing, new research by The Gonski Institute of Education suggests unstructured play should be an essential part of the curriculum.
The UNSW Gonski Institute for Education has officially launched. Based at UNSW’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Institute brings together scholars, policy-makers and practitioners to conduct research that will help improve academic and wellbeing outcomes particularly for disadvantaged students and those who live in rural and remote Australia.
