Quality Student Experiences
Photovoice: A Picture Can Replace a Thousand Words
Discussion threads can be tedious for students and instructors. Lengthy responses, required participation minimums, and failure to connect with lived experience may result in discussion chore vs. discussion engagement. Photovoice offers an alternative by challenging students to visually respond to discussion prompts and explore the course content through each other's "lens." This interactive session provides a framework for implementation along with practical constraints.
Recognize photovoice as a tool for promoting student engagement in the discussion threads.
Examine the practical application of photovoice in the online classroom.
Develop discussion prompts and instructions to implement photovoice in online classroom discussion.
