It's no joke! A significant amount of research exists about the positive impact of humor on student learning when used well by educators.  As educators re-evaluate what it means to be effective, increased attention is being given to the affective factors, interests, and emotions within the learning environment. This course brings fun and levity to the forefront while providing specific methods for being humorous and revealing why memes, gifs, and comics are so engaging and effective. Course participants will investigate and develop strategies for humor-infused lesson plans, classroom activities, and routines. Connect with your students, enjoy your lessons, and remember that teaching and learning can be seriously fun.
