The FUNology of Learning
Integrate simple activities aimed at building fun into any learning environment
There is a misconception that we are not serious about learning if we are having fun. On the contrary, we can be very serious about our profession, the art of our instruction, the well-being of our participants and even the importance of our subject matter and still create a sense of fun and wonder in our training. In fact, bringing levity to our delivery can often help to relax our students, reduce their anxiety, and create more memorable learning experiences.
This session examines the relationship between fun and learning engagement. It will provide specific examples, templates and techniques that can be used immediately by participants to enhance engagement and retention. Further to this, it will highlight research and statistics that support the use of fun within a participant-centred framework and will model simple activities aimed at building fun into any learning environment.
- Define the concept of FUNology
- Explain how fun can be used to create more memorable learning experiences
- Identify key research which advocates the benefits of fun and ‘play’
- Demonstrate how to integrate simple activities aimed at building fun into any learning environment
