Project Details

Thanks to a Davis Educational Foundation grant, faculty fellows attended a visual literacy institute before pairing up to work on year-long pedagogical projects.  
Fellows from the College of Art and Design paired with fellows from the College of Arts and Sciences to help each other develop and implement lessons in their classroom.  Faculty fellows found this collaborative experience to be very rewarding!

In the second year of the grant, the faculty fellows reached out to their colleagues across the University to share what they learned and continue to brainstorm.  The Lesley University Library offered visual literacy instruction and developed resources to support faculty and students in their use of visual information.
