Gender through Their Lenses: A Film of Students' Images
Miller, Carol D.; Seitz, Mark James
Interdisciplinary Journal of E-Learning and Learning Objects, v10 p285-292 2014
Students in a Sociology of Gender class were each required to provide five digital photos of something they have seen in their worlds that represents beliefs or behaviors related to gender. The photos were organized into themes related to assigned readings on gender and work, family, sexuality, health, education, and more. A short film using their photos was created for them to review and discuss. Once the course-created film was made available for viewing on-line, students were asked a series of questions to assess the effectiveness and reusability of the learning object and the overall assignment. Providing the photographs and viewing a film constructed from them helped students better understand how pervasive gender messages were in their everyday lives.
