Research shows that images can promote deeper learning. However, research also shows that students underutilize images presented in their textbooks or in class. They undervalue the artwork, or they simply don’t understand it, which all translates into lost learning opportunities. What challenges do our students face when studying from images? Why are some images more effective than others? In this session, we will explore these questions and examine ways to effectively incorporate images in our classes to promote visual literacy and increase learning.
