Teaching and Learning: Visualizing Our Work
Springborg, Martin
Thought & Action, v29 p141-149 Fall 2013
"Teaching and Learning" is a photographic essay that the author began in 2005, as a photography instructor at Inver Hills Community College near Minneapolis-St. Paul. At that time, the author gave his students and himself an assignment: to document their lives and the lives of their peers outside the safe confines of their studio classroom. By the close of that first project year, the author had built a considerable body of work on the topic of teaching and learning. As the author moved on to positions in faculty development and teaching at other institutions, he continued to add to the "Teaching and Learning" project and gradually included more images of college staff and administrators. Eventually, the photographs brought to light a vital necessity of work in higher education: collaboration among people from different institutional sectors. As he continues to work on this project today, its focus is increasingly on the shared responsibility for student persistence and success. The images included in this article were made within the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, specifically at Inver Hills Community College, Hennepin Technical College, and Central Lakes College. The authors' ultimate intent is to make visible faculty and administrative work--both internally as well as to external policy makers.
