Join Natasa Lackovic from Educational Research, who will discuss her research, practice and experience of using images with students to explore discipline concepts in an innovative and engaging way. The session also connects to the last Summer Sharing Practice discussion and keynote by James Lamb’s on multimodality

Learn to develop your use of images in teaching and student inquiry, whether you already use images or perhaps if you have never done so. In the session, Natasa will share her research, practice and ideas on using images in teaching. Colleagues from across disciplines are welcome to join this fun session, by the end of the session you should understand, and be confident in supporting your students to inquire and ask questions about the concepts you teach in new, innovative and interesting ways.

The workshop is split into three parts:

  1. Within the first part, you’ll become familiar with a key approach, Inquiry Graphics, to engage students with using images to inquire and question concepts.
  2. In the second part, you will put Inquiry Graphics principles into practice. Using a set of guidelines, and selected photographs, you will develop an example for teaching a topic you choose. Working with the images to help you (and your future students) inquire and question a specific concept that you teach in your discipline.
  3. Finally, we will have questions and a wider discussion on the activity, along with how Inquiry Graphics can support new ways for students to think about discipline concepts.

Within this session, we will use photographic images, but equally, we could use video and illustrations. Please come to the session with a device on which you can browse and save images and videos on.

The session aims to be innovative and fun and, as mentioned above connects to the last Summer Sharing Practice discussion and keynote by James Lamb’s on multimodality. Join us and find out about how an image is not worth a 1000 words, unless you make it speak!
