Visual Media and Critical Pedagogy: Classroom Strategies, Student Learning, and Assessment

Lectures and term papers are not the only way to teach. In fact, a growing body of research suggests that asking students to produce visual documents (e.g., infographics, concept maps, comic strips, photographic memes) is an effective way to encourage mastery complex concepts and critical thinking skills. Inviting students to articulate new ideas visually can foreground relationships between new and pre-existing knowledge. Research supports the development of teaching and assessment strategies that incorporate the visual. This is consistent with a critical pedagogy that addresses the student as more than an empty receptacle for authoritative and unchallengeable knowledge.
