"Why Are You Teaching That? The Importance of Publishing Contemporary Photography Education Research

Saturday, March 12 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Atlanta 4&5

Photography education is a significant social, cultural, and historical practice, an activity significantly under-researched and underpublicized. This panel presentation will discuss published research from the field of art education and approaches toward teaching photography from other academic disciplines to consider possible implications for contemporary photography education. Several existing photography education research projects will be outlined. A case study of a high school photography curriculum redesign from a technical, to a student-centered approach will be presented as exemplary photography education research. An open discussion will follow concerning academic support and avenues for publication of research into photography education.

Moderated by William Neiberding.
