Munch & Mull: Unconventional Curriculum -- Encouraging students scholarly use of images
Ahead of an RCR session to be co-taught with Scholarly Communication Officer David Hansen, Lee Sorensen (Librarian for Visual Studies and Dance) walks us through his approach to teaching scholarly use of images. Lee's past efforts to combine visual and digital literacy instruction have included a partnership with the Nasher Museum of Art ("How Do You Look," http://nasher.duke.edu/hdyl/), LibGuides (on visual literacy, http://guides.library.duke.edu/c.php?g=289544&p=1930263, and finding and using images, http://guides.library.duke.edu/images), and one-on-one consultations, including participation in the Wired! Lab (http://www.dukewired.org/). As part of Monday's M&M discussion we'll consider ways librarians can encourage thoughtful and legal use of images found online, including how to create instruction that makes effective use of RCR, as well as how librarians can repurpose instructional materials that Lee and others develop to use in their own digital literacy instruction.
