Visual Literacy: Engaging Context in the Classroom
Date and Time
Monday, February 28, 2022 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
You can RSVP for this event
This workshop will meet in-person on the Allendale campus.
Visual literacy asks us to engage deeply with observation, but also asks us be responsible to context as we select images to support student learning. This session combines discussion and workshop activities to address the spectrum of ways context is an important factor when creating course materials. Together, we will consider the informed selection of images as well as engage with the ethical contexts for their creation, reception, and reuse.
To make the most of this workshop, participants should come with a laptop and a PDF of a classroom lesson that incorporates images. We will use these as a starting point for our work together.
Facilitated by Sigrid Danielson, Visual and Media Arts, and Melissa Morison, Classics Department.
