UTPS 503 Photography: Who Are We? - Constructing Identity through Images

Division of Continuing Studies Professional Institute for Educators

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
500 level graduate course

Photography has always been a democratic medium and virtually anyone can make a photograph, but learning how to read images and understand what they tell us about ourselves and others is often overlooked. Participants learn how to use the digital archives of the Library of Congress to prepare lessons that incorporate concepts of visual literacy. Participants examine how photography influences identity and how it can be used as a teaching tool in grades K-12. Course activities include field trips for an insider’s look into local archives and museums. Content is appropriate to a range of subject areas as connections to social science, identity, expression and literacy are explored.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
