Visual Narratives as Reflective Processes for Learning Engagement

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


Alongside the various drives and interests in student engagement in higher education have emerged a plethora of approaches for generating data for learning, teaching, curriculum development and quality assurance, and research. The
innovative methods which fall under the “visual narrative” umbrella draw on a number of traditions of academic and practitioner research in fields as diverse as psychology and psychotherapy, artmaking and cultural analysis, creative arts
education, and ethnography. The lessons learnt from such multidisciplinary have created a plethora of heterogeneous methods and analytical approaches. The artifacts produced range from analogue low resource methods, such as drawings
in comic strip-like sequences, the appropriation of found imagery, and/or objects animated through stop-motion, through to contemporary new media, including digital storytelling, vodcasts, et cetera.
