Special Issue. WAC, WID, ECAC, CAC, CXC, LAC â€” VAC? Incorporating the Visual into Writing / Electronic / Communication / Learning Across the Curriculum
Disciplines across the curriculum increasingly respond to the visual culture into which our students graduateâ€”and from which they come. This special issue explores the use of visuals to teach, to construct knowledge, and to deconstruct knowledge; specific disciplinary expectations concerning visuals as end products/forms of communication; the production, changes and/or effects visual technologies (from paper to screen) have had on our field; the intersections between/among visual/written/spoken pedagogies and productions across disciplines/interdisciplines; ways in which brain activity dedicated to writing intersects/affects/changes visual production.
