Establishing a Positive and Enjoyable Teaching and Learning Atmosphere Using Humor: A Case Study
Chia Kea Yap Heriot-Watt University, Malaysia
The current university education culture can be daunting and less than enjoyable, especially when education is solely predicated upon formal, measurable, and concrete learning outcomes. While most classes mainly require lecturers to deliver syllabi and ensure their students have achieved all the learning outcomes, little focus is placed on the learning atmosphere that helps students to learn happily and more enjoyably. However, there are many ways to address this situation and make classroom learning a positive experience. This study aimed to share a case study of incorporating humor into one of the courses to improve student’s learning experience and wellbeing.
