“Do not…keep children to their studies by compulsion, but by play.”
As children, life was so simple.
Our cares were few.
We had no publications to print, events to plan, or donors to solicit.
We didn’t worry about media deadlines, state budgets or enrollment targets.
We just wanted to Imagine. Invent. Explore.
We had an unwavering focus.
Free of paradigms. Limitations. Rules.
At its core, playing is learning — at its best.
It teaches us Creativity. Problem solving. Stick-to-it-iveness. Cooperation and teamwork.
And in today’s higher ed sandbox, we need those skills more than ever.
This June, SUNYCUAD welcomes its members to Rochester.
Home of the Strong National Museum of Play, and the National Toy Hall of Fame!
Full conference and registration details will follow in the coming weeks.
Don’t miss this year’s SUNYCUAD Conference: June 3-5, 2015.
Together, we’ll relive our youth — and reawaken those simpler days.
And though you might not realize it at the time…
We bet you’ll learn a thing or two along the way.
