#59 Picture This!

cc Elmada, 2007

An exhibition of photographs to enhance learning.
Students and staff are invited to submit photographs to an exhibition of photographs and stories to be held in Sheffield Hallam University in May 2008. There is also a photo competition to encourage students to submit work.
A Picture is worth a thousand words - Prove it!
Digital cameras in one form or another are within reach of most of us everyday, wherever we are. Tools to edit and distribute the photographs we produce are also widely accessible. Your challenge is to demonstrate how can we take advantage of this in education.
Picture This! will be an exhibition featuring photographs taken by students and staff
in the course of learning and teaching.
To encourage students to contribute a photograph, and the story of why it was taken, the University is running this competition with three £150 prizes.

Your photo assignment...
Send us one photograph with between 150 and 300 words that explain why you took the photograph and how it related to your work.
5 further prizes of £10.00 each are available to students who email us the best ideas for how their course could make use of photographs. So whether your strength is in writing, photography or coming up with ideas there's a prize for you!
There are 3 categories:
*Ideas - creative ideas for the use of photographs to support learning
*Photograph - most engaging photograph
*Story - best learning story
Submission deadline: 28 March 2008
The Exhibition
An exhibition of submitted work will be hosted in the University during May 2008.

Intellectual excitement is probably the most powerful motivating force for students and teachers alike. Effective teachers are passionate about ideas. They stimulate the curiosity of their students, channel it within structured frameworks, and reveal their own intellectual interests. While students have strong vocational reasons for enrolling in courses of study, unless they are genuinely interested in what they are studying their chances of success are low. Gardens interspaced between the blocks provide the ideal ground for refreshing the intellectual mind.
It is a basic conviction within the Sri Krishna that the college's research activities and research culture must infuse, inform and enhance all aspects of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and learning. Across all disciplines and across all study levels, education in a research-led institution develops its distinctive character from an understanding of and respect for existing knowledge and the traditions of scholarship in particular fields, recognition of the provisional nature of this knowledge, and familiarity with the processes involved in the ongoing creation of new knowledge.
