Using an Infographic to Encourage Deep Reading

RIPS Law Librarian / Cindy Guyer: “…At the USC Gould School of Law, we provide students with reasons for why a case might be useful. We call them case selection factors. For example, some factors to consider include weight of authority, court level, depth of reasoning, factual relevancy, and decision date. These factors inform and guide students when evaluating cases, and thus encourage deep reading. But again, telling the students about these factors isn’t enough anymore. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with infographics. Presenting information and knowledge visually, such as through graphs, flowcharts, timelines, and diagrams, is a gold standard of instructional design. For example, I used Microsoft Visio to create a flowchart for determining whether a California unpublished state case could be cited. There are plenty of other options to create infographics, such as Microsoft Powerpoint, Visme, Adobe Illustrator, Picktochart, Slidesgo, and Canva…”
