    The use of humor is effective in motivating students, relieving anxiety, and building rapport.  It is also awesome.

    In this hour, we'll talk about why you should bring humor into your class, the types of humor available to you, the types of humor to avoid, and more.  Absolutely no giraffes or harmonicas permitted!

    Note:  This workshop is part of the "What You Need to Know: Essential of Effective Teaching" series.  You may register for any and all workshops in the series by clicking on the registration link above.
