Discourses in Visual Culture

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

As educators it is our responsibility to promote a culture of inclusive learning and interaction for and by all. Following research and consultation with staff, students and support staff it was clear that there was a real need to create a cohesive community of learners. But how do we ensure that all of our learners are included and enabled to fully participate within discourses in visual culture? How can we compliment traditional teaching and learning methods with resources that enhance the learners experience both inside and outside of the classroom, while ensuring the adoption of an appropriate method of delivery or teaching style which ensures good communication and a healthy learning environment for all?This reusable learning object was created to work in tandem with classroom teaching and encourage enquiry-based learning while positively supporting all individuals in deepening their learning. The University of Ulster was awarded a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning CETL(NI) for the development of institutional e-learning services. I was selected as Faculty representative for my project to develop an online learning object to support first year students in their theoretical studies. This learning object leads the learner through thematic sections with videos of staff, from differing disciplines, responding to questions (transcripts are also provided). Web-links are listed in each area and were selected to guide the learner’s research in a more focused and meaningful way.
