For the most part, the visual component has been ignored in programs developed to improve the general education of undergraduate students. At the University of Cincinnati (Ohio), however, a general education program has been developed that includes a visual literacy component. Faculty development workshops have been held to remind faculty members of the importance of visual literacy. Workshops have focused on three acquired abilities: (1) the need to visualize internally in response to stimuli that are both a discipline-related and non-discipline related; (2) the need to create visual images that are both art-related and non-art-related; (3) and the need to read visual images in the natural and built environments. The acronym VCR, from visualize, create, and read, is a fitting acronym for the approach the workshops intend to promote. Seven figures illustrate the discussion. (Contains 9 references.) (SLD)
