by faculty Steve Bissette
Location: Briggs Opera House, 5 S Main St, White River Junction
As an instructor at The Center for Cartoon Studies since its founding in 2005, long-time cartoonist/writer/editor/publisher Stephen R. Bissette has been privileged to witness (and, at times, participate in) the creative process of various cartoonists as they created work that focused on their own personal health issues and histories. Bissette offers an illustrated overview of the path, perils, and potential inherent in the creation of such intensely intimate and introspective works.

Constructing Curricula

Graphic Medicine is increasingly being taught in the classroom, with curricula being developed for undergraduates, medical students, graduate students and others. This working group is for people interested in sharing ideas about teaching Graphic Medicine, developing curricula, and creating a syllabus exchange for Graphic Medicine. Some questions to consider:

• How should Graphic Medicine be taught in the classroom?
• What resources currently exist?
• What methods are effective for teaching people to critically read comics?
• What techniques are useful for helping learners create their own graphic narratives?
• What’s the best way to share and disseminate curricula?

Working group participants are encouraged to bring their own syllabi and to avail themselves to the publicly-available syllabus created for the National Library of Medicine exhibit on Graphic Medicine: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/graphicmedicine/education-highered1.html

Looking forward to a lively exchange of ideas!
