    Leslie Umstattd, DEdmin

    Interim Director of Digital Learning

    Dr. Umstattd presented to faculty on inforgraphics at the Kansas City Professional Development Council Enhancing Teaching and Learning Conference at Cleveland University - Kansas City in Overland Park, KS on March 2, 2019.

     

    ABSTRACT: Visual aides have always enhanced the learning process and connected students to content in ways words alone cannot. It is reported that people remember 10 percent of what they hear, 20 percent of what they read, and 80 percent of what they see. (The Benefits of Infographics in Education, Retrieved from www.copypress.com). This workshop will offer insight into practical uses of infographics in the classroom from content delivery as well as student assignments and activities. Infographics offer a delivery method that hits many learning styles and engages the learner at higher levels of thinking through creation of their own products and allows them to synthesis vast amounts of content into a single graphic representation.
