Laugh and Learn
Seidman, Alan; Brown, Stephen C.
Adult Learning, v27 n1 p41-43 Feb 2016
Adult learners of tomorrow will face many challenges that will make it harder to attend classes. The demands of daily living will continue to multiply. Therefore, flexibility is among the keys to providing a quality learning experience for adult learners. This means teachers must constantly innovate to keep the class content fresh and their delivery style engaging. This is where humor can be helpful. Weaving humor into an adult or continuing education class makes the students want to come back. If the class is fun, attending it becomes a priority. The impact humor has on learning cannot be understated. It will be imperative for future educators to introduce techniques that will get students' attention and at the same time support their pedagogy.
