Proposal Abstract

TRU Teaching Practices Colloquium Session Proposal (40 minutes, including discussion) Opening Up sub-theme Terryl Atkins, Marie Bartlett, Thomas Sandhoff Open a new door to activities in critical analysis – engage your learners through images TRU highlighted communications as one of the main growth areas for current career development, because we live in a world of information shaping and synthesis. Visual literacy, visual communication, and a critical emphasis on visuality have been identified as “the most important and potentially revolutionary problem in current curricular theory” in the college and university system. (Elkins 2008) No longer considered supplemental to other forms of information, The American Association of College and Research Libraries has identified visual literacy key to 21st century critical understanding in their Visual Literacy Standards Document (2011). CAISSIE (Critical Analysis of Images Site (seeing, imaging, examining)) is an OER (Open Educational Resource) developed by TRU’s faculty member, Terryl Atkins. If you are looking for a classroom activity that would inspire your learners to critically examine a topic through images, CAISSIE may be a great find. A space full of possibility, CAISSIE can accommodate group or individual projects, giving learners a platform to create and publicly share critical content. As technology advances, image-based learning moves to the forefront of pedagogy throughout the disciplines. In this workshop, we will showcase CAISSIE and discuss how it can support learning activities in your classroom. This resource can provide direct benefit to students because it provides critical understanding of the use of imagery to collect and convey information across the disciplines.
