Students Assemble with Cody Havard, Ph.D.

 

In today’s episode of My Disney Class Podcast, Ryan and Howie welcome back to the show, Dr. Cody Havard from The University of Memphis. Those that remember, we had Dr. Cody on the My Disney Class Podcast back in Season 5 Episode 20. We strongly recommend that you go back and give it a listen as Dr. Cody does a great job talking about his passion for Disney and how Disney fandom has an impact on our lives and interactions. 

Today on the show though Dr. Havard is here to discuss his newest published paper titled “Students Assemble: Acclimating to College using the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” This can be found in the Journal of Undergraduate Research but Dr. Cody has set up a special link just for our listeners to access and read the paper. He has also included some other valuable resources as well, so make sure to check out the link in our show notes so you don’t miss out!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the characters that play out their storylines inside of it are extremely popular right now in our society. Dr. Havard has recognized this in his students and discussions he has had especially in his course, Being a Fan of Disney. In this episode, Dr. Cody explains how he developed this idea and why he believes this can be a powerful tool not only with his college students but also with students in elementary, middle, and high school. 

We think you are really going to enjoy hearing Dr. Havard discuss how he has analyzed each character of the MCU and then how he helps students draw connections to the characteristic traits of those characters with the character traits they have. There is definitely a Hulk size value of educational and social-emotional content in this episode. So unless you are an emotional Iron Man, we think you are going to agree with us too that Dr. Havard has knocked it out of the Universe with this paper and lessons. Don’t forget to check out the links in the show notes to see all the wonderful resources Dr. Havard has put together for us and also don’t forget to join our community of incredible educators over on Facebook in the Educators Who Love Disney group.
