Creating a Colorful Classroom: Bringing Visual Media and Graphics into the Information Literacy Session.

Published on

Tired of your own text-based presentations and activities when teaching students basic information literacy and research skills? Visual media and graphics can quickly and easily capture the attention of your students in ways that you cannot always do on your own, and help students learn skills in a more dynamic way. Traditional Venn Diagrams, text-based PowerPoint presentations and database walk-throughs can be integral to teaching research skills, but as educators learn more about how people learn, we know that these tactics don’t capture everyone. This presentation will cover various ways in which instructors can use visuals to engage students and apply research skills. Examples provide new ways for teaching skills such as keyword creation, evaluative criteria, and understanding various library and academic processes. Participants will engage with one of these examples during the talk, and see how easy they can be to integrate into even the shortest information literacy session.

Download the presentation to get the full effect with animation, plus talking points.
