Photography in Practice

In Robin Kelsey's gen ed, "Seeing is Believing: A History of Photography," students complete a final project by producing multiple photographs that engaged the history of photography in an inquisitive and meaningful way. The projects are varied, but each has a planning stage and an execution stage. Students have to plan their photographic project in consultation with practitioners and teaching fellows. They submit their projects along with an account of the process of making them. Professor Kelsey suggests making sure sufficient expertise is available to the students.  Consider the balance between a non-verbal project with a verbal account of its production, and work closely with teaching assistants and students on the evaluation criteria.
