Description

Sequential art (e.g., comics and graphic novels) has been shown to be beneficial to learner understanding in diverse fields such as medicine, management, and biology. The goal of this workshop is to help participants develop an appreciation for the potential of this lesser-known pedagogical tool. The workshop will focus on the process of creating educational comics, from topic selection, to stylistic choice, to workflow. A large portion of the workshop will be dedicated to the "pencils-on" experience of creating a comic, either in a team or individually. Individuals from all faculties and disciplines are welcome. No artistic skills or experience required!
