Teacher Preparation for Visual Literacy


Research supports the importance and value of teaching components of visual literacy to preparatory teachers, but there is little evidence that this activity is intentionally addressed in many teacher education programs. This presentation offers an updated review of the research, a visual representation of the place visual literacy is (or could be) embedded into professional standards (such as NCATE and ISTE,) and education degree programs, and an opportunity to view and evaluate actual undergraduate student presentations from the perspective of visual literacy in the teacher training curriculum.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Know relevant research pertaining to place of visual literacy in teacher training programs

  • Apply rubric for effective visual presentations to authentic preparatory teacher class products

  • Consider the value of using a visual presentation to verbal report in an authentic education course assignment
  • Presenter:
