Student affairs personnel are employed in a wide range of institutional types and functional areas. To function effectively in these settings, student affairs professionals must understand the purposes of higher education and the role of student affairs personnel in facilitating learning and personal development among students. Knowledge and appreciation of the history, philosophy, and theoretical underpinnings of the field, as well as current and emerging issues facing higher education are key to working as an educator in student affairs. This course is designed to introduce you to the student affairs profession and the higher education environment in which it functions.

This course is designed for educational researchers, teachers, and social scientists interested in how we communicate with and through images. I separate the general topic into four modes, or ways of knowing and studying visually. These include “empirical,” “narrative,” “phenomenological,” and “reflexive” or “collaborative”modes. Despite their perhaps daunting labels, these are straightforward ways of understanding and using images. Students investigate these approaches in depth and imagine their relationship to issues in educational pedagogy and research. Students prepare short projects to demonstrate their understanding of these four approaches. While projects will involve making photographs, students need no prior experience as a photographer, nor specialized equipment beyond their cell phones. For those with deeper interest in photography per se, the course will offer advanced instruction.
