The present study aims to explore the role of higher education teacher professional development in the integration of visual literacy instruction within the context of higher education. Visual literacy is a crucial skill that empowers students to comprehend and generate visual content across diverse domains. However, many higher education instructors lack the necessary training and support to effectively incorporate visual literacy into their teaching practices. This research employs a survey research design to investigate the significance of teacher professional development in visual literacy implementation. The research questions address various aspects of visual literacy development in higher education, encompassing the current status of visual literacy training, effective professional development programs for teachers, suitable teaching methods, education technologies, attitudes of higher education instructors towards visual literacy, and the influence of student engagement with visual materials on visual literacy advancement in Kuwait. To collect data, a survey questionnaire will be administered to a sample of higher education teachers. The obtained data will undergo analysis employing both descriptive and inferential statistical techniques, The outcomes of this study are anticipated to provide insights into the effectiveness of collaborative, experiential, and technology-enhanced teacher professional development programs in fostering visual literacy development within higher education settings. Additionally, the study may shed light on the significance of student engagement with visual materials and the necessity for further research on effective teaching methods and educational technologies for promoting visual literacy.
