About this event

Join us for our virtual event this month as we look at how anime can be used as a learning tool in the classroom. Our special speaker is Emilie Waggoner (Director of First-Year Experiences and lecturer at the University of Denver). She will be talking about how educators can use anime in there classrooms and how you can include different fandoms in the classroom. After the main presentation by Emilie there will be a conversation about additional ways to use anime/manga to engage students both inside and outside of the classroom between Emilie and resident geek Julia Bilderback (Assistant Registrar at CCD and Chief Geek of Geeked Colorado). Then if time allows we could do a question and answer session. 

In order to take part in the event you must register through the Fan Meetups site.
