Theories of Play in Adulthood

This is a pilot version of the first step of a course I'm considering developing! It is a short (under 1 hour) introduction to some play scholars / theory.

While it's a pilot it will be free, then if I decide to develop a fuller course on using play with adults, it will switch to a small charge for this first step of it.
