States. His online course and summer on-campus courses have had an
outstanding and immediate success with both US and international students.
He is the co-author (together with his wife, award winning Children's book
author Gayle Haley) of Visual Messages: Integrating Imagery into

education across the curriculum as part of K-12 education (as it exists in
other countries such as Canada, the U.K. and his native Australia.) A
charismatic and enthusiastic speaker, Dr. Considine is known for his
outstanding ability to convey the importance of the media and practical
value of media literacy for education in the new millennium.
