Many university faculty have had few formal opportunities to consider the selection, use and impact of visuals in teaching or learning. Visual literacy is a concept which encompasses many of these ideas in research, theory and practice.
Students in today’s classrooms, whether face-to-face or virtual, are inundated with visual communications. For instance, these multitasking students are using digital media, reading, and viewing images, while at the same time taking class notes!
In this seminar, Dr. Robinson will introduce the concept of visual literacy, its importance in communication, compare it to media, technology, and information literacies, and explore strategies for the integration of visual literacy into university classrooms. Come learn to see!
