The ability to critically engage with and communicate through visual materials
is becoming a core competency for participation in today’s highly visual
culture. This presentation will share successful techniques for using images in
libraries. Visual learning objects will show how images can frame an
instruction session by capturing learners’ attention and preparing them to
delve into conceptual content. Pedagogical considerations of using images in
the classroom will also be discussed, with special attention to active
learning. Attendees will take away concrete ways to integrate visual literacy
into existing content.
