About this event

Design foundation courses strive to teach students the fundamental principles of visual composition in two and three-dimensional compositions. Teaching these skills has traditionally relied on finger pointing and verbal explanations. With the emergence of eye-tracking technology, the analogue (vague) visual journey lessons can be converted to live, recordable, digital (exact), eye scan paths. Instructors wearing eye-tracking glasses can project what they see “live” to students who see exactly what the instructor sees, and students can utilize inexpensive online eye tracking tools to quantifiably review the eye scan paths and fixations of their compositions. Workshop participants will experience both online and wearable eye-tracking technology in exercises and learn processes and terminology they can migrate to their own classrooms.
