Humor isn’t just jokes — goofing around in the classroom can have many benefits. However, most of us don’t know how to use humor, be goofy, and engage our dork side in our teaching in a way that is appropriate and effective.
Jennifer Miller, instructor in UNI Success Courses @ ASU, will present research on why being goofy is good, but this ProPed is discussion-focused, so participants should come ready to share their own expertise and challenges.
The objectives are to develop some guidelines, strategies for implementation, and ways to grow your use of humor and fun in the classroom. Come explore a new avenue for developing your classroom persona!
The Progressive Pedagogy Series is organized for the greater ASU teaching community by UNI Success Courses @ ASU, a unit of ASU's University College. In these professional development workshops, presenters draw from progressive pedagogical (ProPed) techniques, designed to support student success and retention.
