Teaching & Learning Images
On April 9, 2013, we hosted a workshop with Martin Springborg on Teaching and Learning through the Lens of Photography:
Multi-media resources are integrated into many facets of teaching and learning in higher education. Making photographs that capture the essence of our unique forms of teaching and educational outreach at Caltech can be an accessible and effective way to communicate what we do—to one another, as well as to funding agencies and the public.
In this workshop, photographer and educator Martin Springborg presented and discussed images from an ongoing, national photo-documentary project on teaching and learning in higher education. Through visual and hands-on exercises, participants learned ways in which they can use photographs to document and communicate about their own scientific, academic, and outreach work.
