There is increasing need to be visually literate, as is highlighted in the ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. This session presents the ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards and the application of these to an introductory infographics instruction session. This session will highlight the active learning approach used to allow students to engage with and create infographics at an introductory level.
