How do you use visuals to help your audience develop a schema to understand your work? How can students use visuals as they develop their academic skills? In this session, you will explore how to communicate your work visually, and how visuals communicate structure to help your audience understand the main idea, whether you are teaching or presenting your research. You will explore the different roles visuals can play in your teaching, analyze examples and learn some key principles of visual design, and practice with different tools to communicate your own work in a short format for a non-specialist audience. We will also discuss ways you can help students engage with and use visuals in their course projects. Note: Please meet in Harvard Hall at 2:00pm to walk over to the Learning Lab together.

This session is part of the Fall Teaching Conference, which is designed to prepare new and experienced graduate student teachers for their roles as Teaching Fellows in the FAS. Pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
