Gill Seyfang will showcase Comedy in the Classroom as keynote speaker at UEA’s Learning and Teaching Day 2016. Delegates to the annual celebration of excellent, inspiring, creating teaching at the University will be treated to an after-lunch performance of Swipe Right for Sustainability, starring Gill and colleague Helen Pallett, a fellow Env lecturer.
Gill will then talk through the rationale, whys and wherefores of this teaching method, showing how we went about creating our performances, why they were needed, and what impact it’s had on students’ learning. She will aim to send every delegate away with ideas about how to apply some version of this method in their own teaching work, as well as some key tools for how to adapt and apply it.
The day is open to anyone at the University of East Anglia, and resources from the event will be available afterwards for those unable to attend.
