Speakers are:

1. Dr Nicola Daly (Senior Lecturer, Division of Education) speaking on Layout in bilingual picturebooks: why it matters.

Bilingual picturebooks feature illustrations and text in two languages. Over the last 15 years I have been examining the way languages are presented in picturebooks using a framework called linguistic landscape. In this presentation I will share findings related to books featuring languages from around the world, exploring why the layout of bilingual picturebook matters.

2. Ms Yun Zhou (PhD candidate, Division of Education) speaking on  Infographics for evidence-based story-telling in healthcare contexts

Being trustworthy and accessible are key features of infographics that inform people in healthcare contexts to make decisions. In this presentation, based on my on-going PhD project that aims to support medical students to create infographics, I will discuss components of infographics that are evidence-based and tell stories.


Each speaker will speak for 15 minutes followed by a five to 10 minutes Q & A.
The recording of previous sessions can be accessed from our group website.
Keep well and take care.

Elaine Khoo, Clive Pope and Maurice Cheng
