Are Infographics Worth It? An Assessment of Information Retention in Relation to Information Embedded in Infographics
To a librarian, infographics seem like the perfect tool to disseminate information. Infographics are particularly effective at cutting through the clutter to communicate with audiences, draw the attention of students, and make concepts more digestible in a quick and straightforward way. But do students think so? More importantly, is it worth the time to create infographics if students don't retain key concepts? Building upon earlier survey-based research done at DePauw University, a study will be conducted with music students at DePauw University (Greencastle, IN) and the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. A survey distributed to music students in the 2019-20 academic year will allow for librarians to better understand student retention of information embedded in infographics.
