Visual communication will be the focus for this summer's UWC faculty workshop, set for Friday, July 10th.
The new TAMU core curriculum and the TAMU Undergraduate Learning Outcomes both call for greater attention to oral, written, and visual communication. The Eyes Have It: Teaching Visual Communication
, a faculty workshop sponsored by the University Writing Center, will focus on teaching students to use visuals effectively in their own work.
We will meet in Evans Library, Room 211, from 8:30 am to noon on Friday, July 10. From the Department of English and the University Writing Center, Dr. Valerie Balester will cover the rhetoric of visuals and using visuals to support an argument; Dr. Sue Geller of Mathematics will cover helping students understand how to create accurate and ethical visuals and different ways to present the same data visually; and Dr. Shari Yvon-Lewis of Oceanography will cover how visual communication changes with different manners of presentation (such as papers, posters, and presentations) and for different genres or styles. The workshop is open to all faculty or graduate instructors; space is limited, however, so register now to reserve a space. A light breakfast will be served.
Registration is now open.
