In the real and imagined

 

Grading always prompts reflection about the semester. What went well, what could have been better. Looking at the 'Creating the Comic Book City' course, I can see it evolved in good ways in this second go around. This course is my contribution to Rollins Foundation in Liberal Arts curriculum or rFLA. You can see learning outcomes intersected with ideas I was  thinking about in the course assignments. This semester, my Creator Profile assignment provided a creative way for knowledge acquired during the semester to inform a critical making assignment.

 

Students were asked to identify a legacy creator (1938-1990), gender minority creator, racial minority creator, and a contemporary creator (1990-present). Clearly I had multiple goals with this assignment. Inclusiveness was one goal and that goal is clear in the final product. Other goals related to exploring the experience of being a creator are harder to see. Reflecting on it, I can do more to inform the design process to make sure that is clear.
