About this Event
When we look at a painting, we identify objects we’re familiar with to help us interpret and analyze what we see on the canvas. When we see photos or videos in news articles, we evaluate how well and how accurately they help to tell the story. We use visuals in our daily lives to help us understand the world around us.
During this virtual workshop, explore methods that can strengthen your ability to evaluate images—photographs, infographics, charts, paintings and more—and videos in an academic environment and your daily life. You’ll learn how to use online tools to analyze images, and how to reflect on your own biases and perspectives when evaluating images.
This workshop is open to the public. It will be led by Yuqiao “Brigitte” Cao, visual literacy librarian, and Amanda McCollom, multimedia literacy librarian. Those working on research posters and multimedia projects are encouraged to attend.
Registration is required. Once registered, you will receive an email with details on how to join the workshop via Zoom.
