John Lean is a third-year PhD scholar at Man Met’s Education and Social Research Institute. In his PhD project, he uses his work with Foundation Year Education students to examine the way in which play can transform participation in higher education.

In this seminar John will discuss how what started out as a straightforward design-based project has, through embracing play as a cultural form, become more about how games can be used as an extended metaphor to understand and enhance undergraduates’ experiences of university
