Participants of this workshop will learn how to use anecdotes and humour while delivering written and/or verbal subject content. Delegates will gain a greater understanding of the use of personal anecdotes and humour as a teaching and learning tool and its possible impact on our students in terms of retention outcomes and learning gain. The session will also include exposure to entertainment and engagement techniques that may be customised to create greater engagement in the lecture theatre and classroom.
