Session Title

New Wine into Old Wineskins? Adding the Visual to Literacy Instruction

Description

Images are significant information carriers in new technologies. Scrutinizing the written word ignores communication work done by images. Intermediality suggests ways to assess images using many of the same criteria for evaluating verbal content, with added visual-literacy criteria. The presenters in this session combine visual and textual literacy into a holistic critical-thinking approach, which enriches interpretation when learners apply rigorous criteria to texts, regardless of their media. Suggestions for such instruction will be provided in a LibGuide.
