In the Learning Technologies Group, we encourage the use of images in CLE courses to enhance the learning experience for students. Research shows learning is positively influenced by visuals (Paivio, 1991) and the use of visualization in thinking appears to be increasing (Stokes, 2002). As learners, it is also quickly obvious if an image adds value to our learning, or if it could use some design assistance.
With this in mind, how can faculty and staff improve the learning experience for students by incorporating useful images in CLE courses, while also teaching, researching, and practicing?
