Teaching Photovoice in a Research Methods Course
School of Criminal Justice
College of Community and Public Service
Research methods is a common course in criminal justice programs across the United States, but many of these courses focus only on quantitative methods. The teaching of qualitative techniques is not as popular or is a small part of the quantitative. This paper will discuss the use of the qualitative method of photovoice as part of a research methods course which allows students to understand the impact that research can have on social and crime problems. The photovoice process aims to use images taken to enhance community needs assessments, empower participants, and induce change by informing policy makers.
