There’s no rule that says students must express what they’ve learned in a college course in the form of a paper, five pages long or otherwise. Sometimes a more visual assignment, one that combines both words and images to literally make their thinking visible, can give an instructor a better sense of what students have learned—and can motivate students to engage more deeply with the course material.
In this workshop, we’ll consider several examples of visual assignments used in courses across the disciplines, including concept maps, posters, presentations, and infographics; discuss learning principles that support the use of such assignments; share strategies for grading visual assignments; and help participants brainstorm visual assignments.
