Cambridge University seeks Lego professor

June 26, 2015

The University of Cambridge is seeking applicants for a newly created Lego professor. The 800-year-old UK university has received a $7.6 M research grant from the Lego Foundation, which “aims to build a future where learning through play empowers children to become creative, engaged, life-long learners.” This follows on the institution’s announcement a year ago that they were seeking a “doctor of chocolate.” The successful applicant will lead the work of the Research Centre on Play in Education, Development and Learning (PEDaL).
