Comic Books, Mock Trials, and Zombies: Engaging Integrative Biopsychology Themes in the Classroom
Abstract

Several topics in biopsychology can be used to explore the integrative process in the classroom. While many of these can be addressed in a straightforward lecture/discussion format, there are a variety of pedagogical approaches that can be utilized to engage students in a more robust fashion. Three integrative topics relevant to biopsychology courses (embodiment, emergent agency, and enhancement) are addressed, and recommendations for how to incorporate online resources, case studies, novels, cinema, and classroom activities are provided. From contemporary film and television, to comic books and recent medical technologies and drugs, a variety of classroom exercises and atypical pedagogical assignments can offer students the opportunity to investigate and engage in the process of Christian integration.
