EDDL 5131 Week 5/6 Activity 6

Learning Outcome: To research and explore typical features of interview styles.

To help students understand the main features of 1:1 interview types, I have created an infographic that  summarises this information whilst simultaneously  modelling how students will need to present their own research for the interview style they are assigned (Phone, Skype, Carousel, Panel, Group, Audition)

Here is my completed infographic:


The combination of text and graphics are effective in supporting the learning for a number of reasons:

  • By using an Infographic to organize ideas, provide background and emphasize key facts it makes it easier for the [learner] to engage in the topic (Vogelsinger, B, 2014).
  • With visuals used to support the text, the resource is more likely to be recognized and recalled by the learner (Medina, 2008).
  • It uses headings to break up the inforgraphic and make the data easier to take in (Balliett, 2011)
  • The infographic supports attention and  minimizes cognitive load (Clark & Lyons, 2010).
  • It provides immediacy and coherence (Dunlap, J.C & Lowenthal, P.R, 2016)  which will result in student’s engaging with the text more.
  • As far as possible I have ensured that the infographic’s visual elements are not decorative but instead used to deliver content vital to the learning content (Dunlap, J.C & Lowenthal, P.R, 2016)
  • It can be printed on 1 page and uses clear titles to quickly establish the purpose (Dunlap, J.C & Lowenthal, P.R, 2016)
  • Finally it focuses on just 1 learning outcomes, features of an interview style, (Dunlap, J.C & Lowenthal, P.R, 2016)  to maintain clarity and impact

How I could improve this

Following The Do’s and Don’ts of Infographic Design by Balliett (2011), I would make the following changes:

  • change some of the text for graphics so that I am not missing a single opportunity to visualize data and not relying on typography
  • Add the percentage/ time using a pie or visual
  • Use more fun and eye-catching font possibly linked to the topic if possible
  • Add more of a hook at the start
  • Change the colour scheme and avoid white as a background
  • Choose 3 primary colour for more impact

In your post, refer to readings and theory to explain how the combination of text and graphics in your infographic is an effective support for learning. Once you have posted your infographic, review posts from at least three other students and offer your thoughts using the guiding questions above.


  1. Hi Sarah, this is a good example of an infographic that makes key information prominent and minimises distraction. There are graphic elements that reinforce the topic at hand but there isn’t an overarching graphical communication – which is often the case. It would also be a great student activity to have them research and then create similar infographics for each interview type.
