Student-centered learning: transforming perspectives through visual communication
Arts and Humanities
Working collaboratively, a professor and librarian increased student engagement by redesigning lessons, assessments, and rubrics in two courses. We applied the principles of informed learning pedagogy (emphasizing awareness of both information use and subject content) to an interdisciplinary photography program with underpinnings of rhetoric, cultural discourse, and visual communication. Through conversation, discussion, writing, and group work, students engaged images and written information, studied language and production of visual media, and applied techniques and knowledge in client projects, image exhibitions, and theses. Results: improved creative work, transformed personal and social perspectives, and a library guide which corresponds to the disciplinary model.
