A burgeoning professional literature attests to the rewards and challenges of teaching comics and teaching with comics (for recent examples, see Wallner, Framing Education, 2019; Parker, Teaching Artfully, 2021; the forthcoming Smyth, Teaching with Comics and Graphic Novels, 2022; and the authoritative anthology With Great Power Comes Great Pedagogy, eds. Kirtley, Garcia, and Carlson, 2020).

In response to that literature, as well as the challenges of remote learning under COVID, this panel invites succinct 15-minute presentations that address the questions, What is it like to relearn the teaching of comics? and How can comics teachers reframe crisis as opportunity?

Proposals from all levels and sectors of education are welcome, including preK-12, higher education, public workshops, senior education, etc. Presentations should be supported by images and/or concrete teaching materials and should invite the audience into discussion.
