A Room of One's Own joins this year's Play Make Learn Conference! Play Make Learn (PML) promotes high-quality learning opportunities for educators, researchers, developers, designers, foundation leaders, policy makers, museum and library professionals, and school leaders who are dedicated to promoting making, gaming, and playful learning.

This is an in person event at the Memorial Union. This event is ticketed and requires registration.


The PML 2024 Conference will be held July 18-19, at the Memorial Union (800 Langdon St.) in Madison, WI. We aimed to engage our audience in cutting-edge learning science ideas and experiences; communicate state-of-the-art design, education, and research; demonstrate new and upcoming games and technology; and network to spark new projects in the following themes:

  • Playful learning
  • Games for learning and positive social impact
  • Making and makerspaces
  • STEAM Education
  • Arts integration in formal and informal spaces
  • Research/practitioner partnerships

Our conference keeps growing! We continue to see the demographics of our audience expand, both in the fields they represent and how far they travel. Attendees and presenters have joined us from across the United States and five other countries, including Canada, Germany, Taiwan, Kingdom of Bahrain, and India.
