Visual Matters in Learning and Teaching
Howson, Alexandra
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v1 n3 p43-66 Win 2008
This article reports on the incorporation of visual material as a tool for learning sociology and discusses a poster assignment introduced as a means of assessment in an academic context committed to innovative learning strategies and to teaching and learning enhancement. The article draws on an evaluation of using the poster assignment to assess student learning and argues that visual images can provide valid and insightful ways of "telling about society" which challenge the reliance on text as a means of teaching and learning sociology. The article explores the context in which visual materials are used in teaching and learning sociology and their impact on and significance for assessment and learning. (Contains 1 note.)
