In 2016 ENViL published the CEFR-VL (Common European Framework of Reference for Visual Literacy), the first transnational and European description of the area of learning known as ‘Visual Literacy’ in formal and non-formal art education. Two years later, it is now time to share an overview of the results of the various educational projects and assessment studies that were developed on the basis of this framework, and to look ahead to new and emerging partnerships and projects.

Through plenary sessions and workshops, ENViL will present and discuss current issues about visual culture and competency-based teaching and learning practices.

Four topics will be discussed:
  • Assessing Visual Literacy
  • Assignments to foster Visual Literacy
  • Visual Literacy in early childhood education
  • Comparative studies concerning the main models of Visual Literacy and their approaches of competencies development
