Visual Literacy: Learning to Look // Looking to Learn

September 26, 2019, 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Graduate Students, Instructors

Visual literacy emcompasses analyzing, interpreting, creating, and sharing images. An important component of visual literacy is understanding how to assess images that are found and used in the research process. How do we teach students to look critically? How do we support students as they experiment with visual content in their own research? How do we evaluate projects that incorporate graphics and images?

We will introduce a model of visual literacy that expands your practice in working with images. Together, we will also explore the role of images in pedagogical practice—from finding and choosing to evaluating meaning and use.

Bring your questions and your own strategies. Refreshments provided.


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on September 25, 2019 - 5:00pm.
