Brussoni Lab x Chorus Kits
Join Chorus & Clouds in welcoming back Rachel Ramsden, who works along side Dr. Maria Brussoni from the Brussoni Labs at UBC
FEBRUARY 16th - 7:30-9PM at 2505 West Broadway Chorus Kits!
Research is clear on the importance of regular and repeated access to outdoor risky play. Despite the known benefits of outdoor play, children in North America are spending less time outdoors. In addition, children’s play experiences have become more monitored and controlled. This session will help you build the case about the need for outdoor risky play in your experiences with children, whether as an educator, parent, or family member. Learn the key concepts that support outdoor risky play and how you can begin to incorporate these into your outdoor experiences with children. This workshop will highlight examples from the field, outline how to identify a hazard from a risk, and showcase recent research from the Play Outside UBC Lab. This session will also make available the resources and tools to help you get started in your role supporting young children’s participation in outdoor risky play.
