Comedy in the Classroom

innovative teaching in higher education, using the performing arts to engage and inspire students


So far we’ve developed four performances for our teaching at UEA, focusing on theoretical debates and perspectives within environmental social science. You can read more about these, and watch videos too – trailers, highlights and full-length options are all here where possible.

You are welcome to use these videos in your own teaching – we just ask that you let us know you’re doing it so we can get a sense of how far the idea is spreading, thanks!
