Course Description

Keeping your students engaged to the lesson can be hard, sometimes. Why not adding humor and fun to your habitual communication, then?

Comedy and humor are great resources in every teacher’s toolbox. Small jokes and a funny mood can spice up your lessons, and give them that particular flavor making them unforgettable.

This course will allow you to improve your capacity of public speaking by digging into humor and comedy. It will help you explore the humoristic side of your personality, and learn to exploit it for more effective communication – at school and in life.

As a potential participant, you might feel that you are not funny enough to take the course. As past participants like to say, however, they didn’t discovered their full comic potential until they took the course!

The course will have a strong practical component, so be ready to get actively involved! Participants will work alone, in groups, and in the class to explore their personalities, looking for their unique comedy style and voice.

They will practice public speaking and their verbal, non-verbal, and paraverbal communication, giving and receiving feedback from the trainer and the group.

Participants will also learn about different types of comedy and some of the most popular performers, their differences, and their styles.

Moreover, the course will dive into how jokes can get edgy, political, and uncomfortable, and what is the need for “safe spaces” in different contexts like business and education.

By the end of the course, participants will know how to mine their everyday life to find good “comedy material”. They will have improved their writing and delivering a humorous speech thanks to the feedback by the group and the trainer and numerous tips from public speaking and acting; and they will get more comfortable telling jokes and using humor in your lectures, presentations, personal and professional life.

Am participat la un curs pe tema comunicarii, public speaking, folosirea umorului la clasa. Cursul ne-a scos din zona de comfort, punandu-ne in situatii reale, concrete de comunicare. Imbinand teoria cu practica, ni s-a oferit atat o abordare informationala, cat si o serie intreaga de exercitii practice, pentru a duce informatia teoretica in contexte concrete. Organizatorii cursului au comunicat eficient, atat inainte de desfasurarea mobilitatii, pe parcursul ei., cat si post mobilitate. Formatorul a urmarit constat feedback din partea participantilor, si si-a adaptat abordarea modulelor urmatoare la acest feedback. Una dintre cele mai valoroase achizitii obtinute in urma participarii la curs a fost ideea si aplicatiile prin care umorul poate fi folosit in comunicare pentru a aborda orice fel de subiect, pana la unele dintre cele mai delicate, cum ar fi probleme sociale, stereotipuri culturale, politica, probleme economice, etc. Prin implicarea in activitatile propuse, am simtit ca am castigat in ceea ce priveste explorarea creativitatii, a abilitatilor "soft", precum si a interesului pentru dezvoltarea profesionala si personala. Nu in ultimul rand, participare la acest curs mi-a adus sansa sa experimentez o bucata de cultura pragheza. Am participat la un festival de film, un show de stand up comedy, am vizitat muzee, am cunoscut o societate vibranta si foarte activa. In concluzie, as zice ca experienta participarii la acest curs mi-a fost deosebit de utila, atat pentru munca la clasa, cu elevii, cat si pentru interesul pentru dezvoltare personala, si invatare pe tot parcursul vietii. Cu siguranta as recomanda acest curs tuturor celor ce isi propun sa isi exploreze propriile abilitati de comunicare, si sa isi insuseasca tehnici prin care comunicarea poate fi eficientizata, chiar cu folosirea umorului ca instrument.

Am participat la un curs oferit de Europass Teacher Academy, pe tema generala: Umor si public speaking pentru profesori si comunicatori. Am ales cursul pe baza interesului nostru, in urma nevoii identificate la nivelul scolii, de imbunatatire a calitatii comunicarii in mediul scolar. Trainerul a dovedit o aplecare deosebita pentru nevoile cursantilor, a urmarit feedbackul obtinut la sfarsitul fiecarui modul din curs, si a adaptat activitatile ulterioare la acesta. Post mobilitate, si-a manifestat disponibilitatea de a oferi suport si consiliere cursantilor, in probleme legate de comunicare si public speaking. Una peste alta, as aprecia experienta cu Europass Teacher Academy ca fiind una deosebit de informativa, placuta si utila.
