Will a hot pink background on my slides keep students awake? If I bold, italicize and underline, will viewers actually read the content? User-friendly digital technologies allow us to easily incorporate images, graphs, and color into our communication. However, academics, even those with up-to-date technology and pedagogy skills, often lack the requisite design and visual literacy skills to make effective visual choices. In this workshop, we define effective visual communication and explore its relationship to learning. Facilitators will share basic design “grammar” for improved visual presentation of materials and discuss sustainable visual communication strategies to support teaching and learning.
