This workshop will discuss visual imagery strategies and reflect on ways to incorporate them into your course.
Making Pictures: Using the Neuroscience of Visual Imagery to Improve Student Learning
Wednesday, October 21st, 12:15-1:25 p.m.
Belk Pavilion 208
Empirical research has shown that intentionally creating mental images is a powerful strategy for learning. By understanding how the brain creates and uses mental images, we can help students better retain information and build effective study skills. Students often struggle to understand new concepts because they lack foundational knowledge. Visual imagery can strengthen foundational knowledge and contribute to higher-order learning. In this workshop there will be an overview of the cognitive neuroscience of visual memory and we will practice using visual imagery strategies and reflect on ways to incorporate them into any kind of course.
