Learning to Look

Published March 24, 2011

Learning to Look: Visual Evidence and the U.S. Past in the New Media Classroom (LtL) is a collaborative research project for humanities faculty interested in exploring the study of American history, art history, and new media technologies. Fueled by the new history scholarship and the growth of digitized archives on the World Wide Web, LtL focuses on teaching strategies that will help advance student understanding about the past through the use of visual evidence: photographs, illustrations, painting, film, and drawings.

LtL’s structure includes week-long institutes, leadership training seminars, campus workshops, case study reports, and curriculum development projects. The program will be held on 10 college/university campuses across the nation from Massachusetts to California, and Louisiana to Michigan. For more information contact: Donna Thompson.
