Leading a public workshop on drawing comics.

My recent workshops include work in comics, online pedagogy, and innovation.

A signing and a panel!

A talk about memoir and comics, a zine workshop, a reading, a signing!

For the Sequential Artists Workshop (Gainesville, FL), I work both online and in-person. In spring 2022, I taught a four-week course (online) about graphic memoir, and led an additional four-week group mentoring cohort working on graphic memoir projects. I co-led a four-day in-person graphic memoir workshop in February 2020, co-moderate the online “Graphic Memoir + Medicine Working Group,” and have done special workshops in project management for graphic novelists.

I co-led a workshop at the 2022 Graphic Medicine conference (Chicago, IL) on using abstract imagery and memory to create a mini-zine.

Wonderful month mentoring graphic memoirists!

This class had us all thinking about memoir, memory, narrative, and wisdom.

For the Big Read Lakeshore (Holland, MI), I have led public workshops in comics and educators workshop in the use of sketchnoting in teaching and learning,

I have also served as the Online Pedagogy Coach and Consultant at Hope College (Holland, MI). I led private, small group, and public live workshops on various aspects of online pedagogy for liberal arts college teachers working to help students thrive (before and during the pandemic!).

I work as a consultant with the Hope College Office of Possibilities and co-teach workshops on Innovation Foundations.

…and many other workshops in creative writing, creative pedagogy, and online pedagogy delivered to the general public, retirement communities, and educators.
