Lessons and Reflections from Incorporating Photovoice into Program Evaluation
Time & Location
About the Event
Photovoice is a participatory research methodology that invites evaluation participants to capture photos that show the world from their perspectives. This practice encourages participants to reflect, share, and learn about aspects of their lives they may not have considered through a camera lens. This session will provide an overview of how photovoice is being used in an ongoing evaluation of a international higher education exchange program. Topics will include the evaluator’s thought processes for selecting and planning this photography-based methodology and lessons learned from implementation. Audience members will be encouraged to consider how it might be used in their work.
