Abstract: In this presentation, three members of the ACRL Visual Literacy Task Force, Dana Statton Thompson, Sara Schumacher, and Maggie Murphy, will share teaching ideas and methods for instruction that utilize images or visual information. Attendees will learn more about the concept of visual literacy and how to incorporate visuals into their instruction. The presentations will introduce a technique to critically read digital images, a lesson for visual source evaluation, and an idea for interdisciplinary workshops which use memes as a framing device. Attendees will also be provided with a list of resources for incorporating visual literacy into their teaching. Time for Q & A will follow the presentation. Presented at ACRL IS Teaching Methods Virtual Event on May 1, 2020.
