Visual Literacy

There is a good chance that GVSU faculty use visual content in our course instruction. Examples include sculpture, charts, maps, paintings, video, drawings, physical objects, photographs, natural settings and even live performances. How effective we are in using such content? The cross-departmental Visual Literacy Team (VLT) conducted a faculty survey back in December and here are the results.

The team is using this information to develop faculty professional development in the concept of visual literacy and in the recommended practice for using visual content. The training will be pilot tested in the fall. On behalf of the VLT; we thank all of you who took the time to complete the survey and inform our work.
