Viz ran three December break workshops for faculty and staff to explore aspects of teaching with visual materials. Through presentations, hands-on exercises, and discussion, Viz aimed to open up new approaches to the use of visual materials in the classroom, foster staff and faculty collaboration, and create opportunities for partnering across the curriculum.

Viz also supported several creative workshops that were scheduled throughout the year.
