In this series of presentations, the panelists will examine various ways in which librarians can use different strategies to highlight how photographs and images can be used to promote engagement with collections and instruction. Using various examples drawn from a wide variety of teaching environments, the panelists will delve deeper into the role of visual literacy in the larger framework of instruction.

Margaret Ericson, “Photography and Migration,” will discuss how scholars, librarians, students, curators, and community members at Colby College have come together to reflect upon the relationships between the medium of photography, migration and community.

Bridget Nowlin, “Using the Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) method developed by Philip Yenawine and Abigail Housen in library instruction,” will share the process she uses with theater students to incorporate VTS and will discuss the results of a long-term collaboration with Theater History instructors.

Micki Harrington, “Embedded Literacies in an Art School Photography Program,” will share strategies for implementing an embedded information & visual literacy instruction program for photography majors.

Robert Gore, “Photo literacy and undergraduate students,” will describe some of the strategies employed over a ten-week credit class to encourage engagement with photographs through historical photobooks, contemporary photobooks, photo-based artists’ books, the work of individual photographers, and book making.
