May 2nd, Thursday – Day 1
The course will be available starting midnight EDT. Day 1 is self paced, but we do suggest going through the material before joining in on Day 2. Day 1 material will include:
- An introductory activity.
- A collection of short readings and videos to get you ready for Day 2.
- A Meme Making Toolkit (with a variety of resources on how to technically go about making your own memes on a computer or on your phone)
May 3rd, Friday – Day 2
The main synchronous activity for Day 2 is a live discussion at 12:00pm EDT. This live discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Mark Sample and a group of Davidson students. They will be talking about how to critically read memes and will also be taking questions live from participants watching. The recording will be available following the synchronous event.
There will be an activity prompt that can be done at any time.
May 4th, Saturday – Day 3
The main synchronous activity / event for Day 3 is Meme a palooza, which will take place live at 2:30 pm EDT. This hour is focused on creating, sharing, and voting on memes, with live commentary from course facilitators. The recording will be available following the synchronous event. The making and sharing of memes can also happen at any time and doesn’t need to be during the live event!
