Images and other types of visual media enhance a wide variety of academic projects, such as a presentation, paper, blog, or online exhibit. Visual content does not merely add aesthetic sizzle to a project, but rather can contribute to its research objectives when properly selected. Consideration of the meaning and impact that visual materials can carry, as well as attention paid to details such as image types, formats, size, resolution, and layout can elevate the impact of an academic work. This workshop will focus on incorporating visual material into your projects, as well as designing and creating meaningful material. Participants will be introduced to image and video editing resources available in the library, and by the end of the workshop will leave with an understanding of how to apply these tools to academic work.
