There is no rule that says that University learning can’t be fun. In fact, we tend to learn better when we’re engaged, interacting and doing a bit more than slogging our way through a ‘checked box’ of ‘learning aims’ in a social vacuum. Engagement is operationalised in a minimum of at least three places: the physical and/or online space (these can be anywhere – boutique, bus, bog, bedroom), the cranium of the educator at the time of ‘teaching’, and the cranium of each learner. The latter two don’t have to be synchronous, but they do have to relate and there does have to be social thingummies, like conversations and feedback, happening.
