Instructors have long incorporated many kinds of visuals into their teaching. Visuals such as images and data visualizations can leaven a lecture and add variety to a set of slides. Visuals can provoke student thinking, jump-start class discussion, serve as prompts for writing and exam questions, and more. But whether these benefits are fully realized depends on what we do with our visual media in the classroom. This workshop will explore ways of using visuals to engage students and enhance learning with a focus on the critical reading of visual texts.
