Spring 2023 UConn ECE English Conference
On Wednesday, March 29th, UConn Early College Experience English Instructors and faculty from the English Department met for a virtual professional development workshop. The topic was “Infographics in ENGL 1007”. Infographics can be a powerful tool for remediating one’s original written work, can be used to interpret data or other textual information, or can stand on their own as a way to present information to the audience in an engaging way. Visual design is a broad topic, and infographics can include anything from maps and graphs, to illustrated recipes, to collages! The group discussed these diverse examples and what tools/platforms can be used to design infographics, the affordances, and limitations of visual genres, and what it means to do visual in the composition classroom.
