Designing Curricula with Visual Media in Mind

Date: 10:30am - 11:45am PDT May 21, 2013

A recent statistic stated that the average person living in a metropolitan area sees over 10,000 images a day. Our lives are inundated with images, and as educators, we are in a position to help students engage with images on a personal, academic, and critical level: sometimes for the first time. In this workshop, we’ll discuss strategies for developing curricula and assignments that critically engage students with images, as well as assessment strategies for evaluating these assignments.
