Now, I See It: How Tutors Can Use Visuals to Enhance Students’ Understanding of Material

Session Overview

 

“Now, I See It”: How Tutors Can Use Visuals to Enhance Students’ Understanding of Material  
Philip Peevy, Lab Instructor, Padron Campus 

Although instructors often employ the use of visuals (videos, PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and the like) in classroom interactions with their students, the use of visuals can also improve learning outcomes and promote a sense of equity during tutoring sessions. This webinar will explain the profiles of visual learners and provide examples of visual software and other materials that tutors can use with such learners. Tutors will also participate in a brief discussion of copyright laws concerning the use of visuals. Finally, in groups of 2-3 members, participants will role play by using visuals in a mock tutoring session.

Objectives

At the end of this workshop, tutors will be able to

  • Identify the specific needs of visual learners
  • Understand basic copyright use of visual materials
  • Use visuals in ways that promote equity and learning during tutoring sessions.
