Hands-on Learning for Happy Learning Experience

Abstract / پوختە / الملخص

Certain hormones are known to help promote positive feelings, including happiness and pleasure. As a follow-up for the seminar that I have delivered in ICET 2021, this seminar will focus on how hands-on learning in the classroom stimulates these hormones in order to create a positive learning atmosphere that will promote self-directed learning and self-confidence in students. The seminar features the examples emphasizing how hands-on learning addresses to the reward system in students’ brain (dopamine); how it addresses to the endorphine experience by challenging the students to use their full potential; how hands-on activities reinforces sense of belonging and social connectedness in the classroom (oxytocin); and how hands-on practices facilitate learning by providing students with a chance to get respect in the group (serotonin).
