With the high cost of education today, design and photography education has to justify its value. This can be difficult when photographic education is undergoing a cataclysmic shift, driven in part by upper administrations intent on outcome driven metrics and in part by the post modern values imparted by a generation of MFA degreed faculty. Drawing on research and interviews conducted by author Michelle Bogre for her book, Photography 4.0: A Teaching Guide for the 21st Century, this presentation will parse the state of contemporary photographic education from the vantage point of photo educators. Rather than being a full length lecture, this presentation will invite members of the audience to discuss and help answer the question: what is the state of photographic education today?
