My research has so far involved analysing all the module specifications within my institution for explicit or implicit reference to developing visual literacy skills as defined in the ACRL standards. I have also mapped these to subject benchmark statements. From this I have identified academic staff whom I wish to interview in order to identify potential bridges and possible barriers to improving visual literacy development in undergraduate students. In keeping with the visual nature of my topic, I hope to include the use of images in my interview technique although I have not yet decided on the precise method.
