Professor Anna Franklin

Wednesday 11 September, 4–5pm

For those that can't attend on the day we will send out a private viewing link to the recorded session.

Babies’ vision is initially poor and they have strong preferences for looking at certain types of things and images. Here, Professor Anna Franklin presents the science of infant visual development, and busts several myths about what babies can and can’t see and what they like to look at. She reveals surprising facts such as how babies see colour, and when babies develop perceptual skills such as seeing in 3D and seeing visual illusions. She also outlines her new research which identifies the visual features of the books that grab babies’ attention, and makes suggestions for how to choose a baby book that is just right for babies’ visual abilities.


This webinar is aimed at anyone involved with young children, either professionals or parents.


Anna is a developmental and visual psychologist and runs the Sussex Baby Lab at the University of Sussex.  Her research on how infants, children and adults see, think and learn about the visual world around them has been funded by a number of funders including Research Councils UK, the European Research Council and Action Medical Research. She is enthusiastic about translating research findings into practical outcomes, and has worked with companies that produce drama, TV, educational materials and commercial products for babies and children.  She is also a consultant for children’s book publishers, providing guidance on baby book design.   


The webinar will be delivered using Zoom – please check your organisation permits access to this platform. If not, we suggest using a personal device to access the event.
