Your lesson is a joke! Bring humor to school

Did you know that research shows humor helps promote memory retention and goal-oriented motivation? If you use humor to deliver a key message it will have more impact and will be remembered. Instructional humor even improves learning outcomes for students, in particular for subjects within the STEM field.

Now, you might think: “Okay, that sounds good! But I’m neither a comedian nor funny”. No fear! In this presentation you’ll hear a practical step-by-step “laughter” manual, specific for the classroom, easy to learn and even easier to apply.
