Infographics for Teaching and Learning
Pre-Conference Workshop Session 2
Come explore and engage in hands-on practice about how to create infographics and how they can be used to increase teaching effectiveness and encourage deeper learning.
Infographics use data and graphic design to tell stories, teach concepts, and present information. Online activities integrating visual data can develop content literacy and analytic thinking.
Join us as we explore some of the most effective ways infographics can be used to increase teaching effectiveness and encourage deeper learning. You will learn how to locate, evaluate, and integrate infographics into your teaching, as well as explore the possibilities for creating infographics with your data. You will review the research behind what makes infographics so compelling, and why they are effective cognitive tools for communicating information and data.
Together, we will experiment with different tools to create infographics and try adapting them to both group and individual implementation plans. You will leave this workshop with multiple ideas, infographics creation recipes, and the confidence to implement them in your own teaching.
Note: This is a “Bring Your Own Device” workshop. Please bring a fully charged laptop or tablet.
