Kimberlin Library, De Montfort University

 

“Making the textual visual” offers Academics, Librarians and Learning Developers an opportunity to share experience and practice. A look at ways of enabling visual and kinaesthetic learners to transcend the text barrier; engaging with text driven disciplines and skills in a visual and tactile way. The day offers the chance to:

  • Experience visual and kinaesthetic learning techniques
  • Hear about the student response and experience of such techniques,
  • Consider the theoretical underpinning to this type of learning,
  • Engage with Critical thinking activities
  • Explore visually enabled reflection
  • Group work to encourage putting these methods into practice
  • A chance to network across disciplines, professions and institutions.

 A day to consider the visual, kinaesthetic, multi-modal, reflective and more cerebral aspects of learning and engagement in a “freed up” expressive working space

This event is free of charge, refreshments and lunch are included.
