Visual Thinking: An Experiment in Student-Led Learning
Join me, Michelle Pacansky-Brock, as I share an overview of a teaching experiment from my online History of Photography class in which students were delegated with the challenge to create a learning module about the work of mid 20th century photographers. In week two, the students re-engaged with the module, learning from what each other had contributed and responding to the critical discussion prompts they had planted throughout the presentation.
What did students learn from this activity? How did this personalized approach to curating content present new challenges and new opportunities for relevant and personalized learning? Were there unexpected challenges that presented new opportunities? And what were my reflections, as the instructor, on the sideline watching all of this play out? Will I do it again? Join me for an hour of candid sharing and discussing!
