This encyclopaedia entry is a scholarly article, rooted in the literature, research and theory of play, and situating play within university learning. The mantle of innovation is particularly relevant in this context as while play is accepted and mainstream in primary and secondary education it is far less familiar in the post compulsory sector. The chapter will set the argument for the importance of play within this theoretical context and cite numerous examples of play in tertiary learning to illustrate this.
