Abstract or Summary

This research aims to explore the practices and experiences of Tutors in an Institute of Technology (ITP) with regards to their use of photographs in their classrooms as a teaching and assessment tool. The research will have an exploratory purpose of enquiry, which seeks to discover new understanding and insights, generate ideas and hypotheses for the future. The research project currently being undertaken is a qualitative case study taking place over a two-year period. The study looks at ways in which a small group of Tutors within an Institute of Technology (ITP) in New Zealand are currently using photos within their classrooms, in order to gain an understanding of ways in which they are being currently used to promote teaching, learning and assessment further. As a result the outcome of the study aims to formulate some guidelines and suggestions surrounding future use to promote effective use of photos within the tertiary classroom, in order to stimulate greater understanding and learning.
