Integrating play based approaches into nursing education: Teachers as playful academics

Abstract

The nursing academic, who is responsible for setting the playful conditions, creates a safe and permissive learning environment, which in turn facilitates the student’s ability to engage in fun exploratory learning activities. It is hypothesised that the use of a humanistic stance with playful engagement such as, projective small world play, will facilitate optimal teaching conditions in the higher education sector.
