Comics and graphic narratives have become a key component of my pedagogy, both in terms of the materials I teach and the activities I have students do. Most of my courses take up topics related to my research into the conjunction illness-thought-activism in history. In my work, I am interested in illness and disability in action in particular times and places. Thus, I have found myself drawn to the growing field of graphic medicine, and its diverse community of practitioners, as inspiration for my research and teaching. During the pandemic, graphic medicine has become even more central to what and how I teach. In this essay, I discuss how I used comics as pedagogy in classes on illness and illness politics that I taught during the first year of the pandemic. I begin by briefly addressing how I framed the problem of studying illness in a pandemic before discussing two assignments that show graphic medicine in action as a pedagogical tool: the first, an asynchronous online group discussion exercise in which students practiced annotation as a method of visual analysis, and the second, a documenting COVID-19 final project assignment for which students could document in comics form a pandemic experience.

Wanting to shift the focus in the introductory linguistics classes in an access institution from teaching to learning, I created a tripartite (hybrid) contract that consists of three distinct tasks: labor-based tasks (collaborative forums and breakout activities); content-based tasks (assignments and final project on changing understandings about language) and self-regulated tasks (learning logs, metacognitive awareness surveys, capstone). This contract gives students agency and establishes a culture of “forgiveness” (while maintaining high standards), providing flexibility since my students’ life challenges can affect their academic performance.

Abstract Implementation of education activities on 2020 for college level has changed because of Covid-19 pandemic. It must be carried by online include an exhibition for the Final Project. Dian Nuswantoro university (UDINUS) as an IT based campus has experience on online education implementation. However, this does not apply to final project exhibition activities which are usually held physically in a gallery, as it has been implemented by Visual Communication Design (DKV) majors at UDINUS for years. This transition is a new thing for DKV academic community, so it becomes the main topic of this article. The research was conducted to obtain points of view and conclusion regarding the response of the academic community to virtual exhibition and its potential on post-pandemic period. This research was carried out at the beginning of the even semester according to the UDINUS academic calendar, namely March 2021 by online. Qualitative and quantitative methods are used to gain data deeper through virtual exhibition observation, literature study, and questionnaires to the academic community randomly. The research adapted the diffusion-innovation theory of Rogers and Shoemaker’s model, which has conclusion that the adaptation of virtual exhibition for the final project of DKV students received positive response and it was accepted as a substitution of physical exhibition, as well as an alternative which can be chosen to hold exhibitions in the post-pandemic period. This research can be developed further, especially to examine the potential of virtual exhibition deeply, that have not been found in this research.Keywords: Covid-19, Visual Communication Design, diffusion-innovation; virtual exhibition, perceptionAbstrak Pelaksanaan kegiatan pendidikan tahun 2020 di tingkat perguruan tinggi mengalami perubahan signifikan akibat pandemi Covid-19. Aktivitas perkuliahan wajib dilaksanakan secara online termasuk pameran karya Tugas Akhir. Universitas Dian Nuswantoro (UDINUS) sebagai kampus berbasis IT memiliki pengalaman dalam pelaksanaan pendidikan secara daring. Namun, hal ini belum berlaku untuk kegiatan pameran Tugas Akhir yang biasanya dilaksanakan secara fisik dalam sebuah galeri, sebagaimana telah diterapkan oleh program studi Desain Komunikasi Visual (DKV) di UDINUS selama bertahun – tahun. Transisi ini merupakan hal baru bagi civitas akademika DKV, sehingga menjadi topik utama artikel ini. Penelitian dilakukan untuk memperoleh pandangan dan kesimpulan terkait respon civitas akademika terhadap pameran virtual serta bagaimana potensinya di masa pasca pandemi. Penelitian ini dilaksanakan pada awal semester genap sesuai kalender akademik UDINUS yakni bulan Maret 2021 serta dilakukan secara online. Metode kualitatif dan kuantitatif digunakan untuk menggali data secara lebih mendalam melalui observasi pameran virtual, studi pustaka, serta penyebaran angket online kepada civitas akademika secara acak. Penelitian mengadaptasi teori difusi-inovasi model Rogers dan Shoemaker, yang menghasilkan kesimpulan bahwa adaptasi pameran virtual dalam Tugas Akhir mahasiswa DKV mendapat respon positif dan diterima sebagai substitusi pameran fisik, serta menjadi alternatif yang bisa dipilih untuk menyelenggarakan pameran di masa pasca pandemi. Penelitian ini bisa dikembangkan lebih lanjut khususnya untuk mengkaji lebih dalam potensi pameran virtual yang belum ditemukan di penelitian ini.Kata Kunci: Covid-19; Desain Komunikasi Visual; difusi-inovasi; pameran virtual; persepsi

In this essay, I discuss the design of “Anatomy and the Archive,” a 300-level writing-intensive medical humanities class for students in the health sciences and liberal arts, and how I adapted when the 2020 COVID pandemic disrupted our plans to mount a gallery exhibition of archival anatomical textbooks as its final project. Students read about medical museums, the history of art and anatomy, book history, and ethical issues surrounding working with human remains, and they visited our campus’s cadaver lab. Experts in these fields guest lectured via Zoom and assisted students remotely to assemble the exhibition. When we were unable to visit a local archive or the gallery space, we brought some of the archive to the classroom and watched video tours of the gallery. Students successfully designed an exhibition “Between Beauty and Knowledge: Women’s Bodies in Anatomical Atlases,” which will open once COVID restrictions have lifted.

Universities within the California State University System are given the mandate to teach the students of the state, as is the case with many regional, public universities. This mandate places teaching first; however, research and scholarship are still required activities for reaching retention, tenure, and promotion, as well as important skills for students to practice. Data management instruction for both faculty and undergraduates is often omitted at these institutions, which fall outside of the R1 designation. This happens for a variety of reasons, including personnel and resource limitations. Such limitations disproportionately burden students from underrepresented populations, who are more heavily represented at these institutions. These students have pathways to graduate school and the digital economy, like their counterparts at R1s; thus, they are also in need of research data management skills. This paper describes and provides a scalable, low-resource model for data management instruction from the university library and integrated into a department’s capstone or final project curriculum. In the case study, students and their instructors participated in workshops and submitted data management plans as a requirement of their final project. The analysis will analyze the results of the project and focus on the broader implications of integrating research data management into undergraduate curriculum at public, regional universities. By working with faculty to integrate data management practices into their curricula, librarians reach both students and faculty members with best practices for research data management. This work also contributes to a more equitable and sustainable research landscape.
