Images in Language
Learning and teaching are faced with radically new challenges in today’s rapidly changing world and its deeply transformed communicational environment. We are living in an era of images. Contemporary visual technology – film, video, interactive digital media – is promoting but also demanding a new approach to education: the age of visual learning has begun. This is especially true for tertiary-level education, for it is here that, on the one hand, teachers for the entire school system are trained, and on the other hand, education and research meet. Visual learning is not merely an option, it is a necessary correlate of the way in which science and scholarship today develop.
