Everybody's a Visual Learner

It's undeniable that visual elements can enhance any lecture or presentation. But all visuals are not created equal. A good understanding of images and their impacts is required to use them effectively.

This session is designed as a broad overview for faculty who want to add a visual dimension to their teaching. We will discuss how images can enhance (or detract) from teaching and learning goals. A hands-on segment will focus on finding free and legal images on the web. We'll touch on a variety of different methods for delivering visual content, including various presentational tools, as well as online image galleries and social media applications. Best practices and technical considerations will also be addressed.

Above all this session aims to get faculty thinking visually about teaching.
