Cooper - Serious Play: Humor as an Assessment Tool

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Participants will become familiar with the philosophical, psychological and """"common sense"""" definitions of humor and comedy. They will also analyze and apply our """"competing frames of reference"""" model of humor to their own classroom settings so STUDENTS can analyze content in a humorous way at high cognitive levels. Participants will create artifacts/products that demonstrate their understanding of our comedy/humor model by applying it to their classroom content (ie. Meme, He said-She heard, I do-They think). We will also share our detailed rubric for this approach to assessment with participants.

It is highly recommended that participants bring mobile or computing devices.
