Beyond putting ‘dank memes’ in your PowerPoint slides or assigning The Hobbit as a literary text, how can, and why should, fan practices and geek pop culture be integrated into your pedagogy in more fundamental ways? This panel brings together writers and educators to discuss how to use common fandom practices to “remix” your classroom in ways that boost student learning. From assignments that use fan fiction as a product to experiential learning to video editing projects, learn how to better engage diverse learners and build fandom-esque community in the high school and college classroom. We’ll share specific examples of how we’ve revised our pedagogy and successful assignments we’ve piloted - including using the film adaptation of Black Panther in the college classroom.
