About the Course

Language of Instruction: English

Course Description

As educators who teach young learners, among others, we often think of ideas to make learning more fun. Fun? Is that still learning? Is fun still stigmatised? In this webinar, we will discuss how children learn this way, but we will also share some – what else? – fun ideas!
