Bisson, Christian; Luckner, John
Journal of Experiential Education, v19 n2 p108-12,107 Aug-Sep 1996

Fun can have a positive effect on the learning process by inviting intrinsic motivation, suspending one's social inhibitions, reducing stress, and creating a state of relaxed alertness. Includes summary of questionnaire responses from 20 experiential education practitioners concerning fun in adventure-based experiences. (TD)
