Metacognitive comics 2.0. (Spring 2020)

Metacognitive Comics 2.0 is a 12-week course that combines personal development with drawing comics. In this course you will have the opportunity to do a holistic evaluation of your life, and reflect about: what would you like to improve? How could you do it? And what do you need to start doing now? Reflections that are combined with your favorite hobby, drawing comics.

The course is open to anyone interested in comics and there is no drawing skills requirements. However it is recommended that participants are already familiarised with basics of drawing comics to fully enjoy the course, because the main focus of this course is not on teaching how to draw comics, rather it focuses on life coaching strategies and the “metacomics method”, a method that refers to the use of comics as a learning strategy via metafictional techniques.
