What do images of higher education convey about our institutions and how they are changing? Can photographs play a more intentional role in educational development? While photography has rarely been harnessed for institutional change and faculty development, recent evidence shows it is powerful tool. Workshop participants will explore the stories that photographs tell about institutions and experience methods for incorporating photography into their practices. They will leave ready to leverage this new resource to document teaching and learning, tell their institutions’ and units’ most important stories visually, help instructors discover new insights, and quite possibly change their campus cultures.
