Presenter: Jim Lyttle (Business)

Is humor an effective means of communicating ideas?

For an exploration of this question, please join us for Prof. Lyttle’s presentation. Based on his study of humor theory and social psychology, his talk will focus on how humor can be used to facilitate learning and when it’s best not to use it—so as to avoid pedagogical pratfalls.

Refreshments will be served. For further information, please contact Gladys Schrynemakers (X1001) or William Burgos (X1094).
