ePortfolio Faculty Workshops Web Banner

The following workshop is designed for those who currently teach students, but is especially geared toward those who are integrating ePortfolios into their curricula.

Teaching Visual Literacy

Effective communication requires more than just the written word. In addition to content, students must also consider the impact their work is making visually. In an ePortfolio, visual literacy provides additional meaning and allows students to engage their audience effectively. In this workshop, we will address the concerns and challenges faculty face with implementing visual literacy strategies into their courses, and identify techniques and resources that help students build their visual communication skills. Participants can expect to leave this workshop with a better understanding of strategies aimed at teaching visual literacy and an action plan for integrating these approaches into their own courses.
