A few weeks ago, I visited Wayne State University and worked on the Teaching and Learning Project with their AMAZING (and fun) Office for Teaching and Learning staff. Over several days, I was able to photograph faculty teaching in music education, literature, molecular biology, facilities design, chemistry, photography, and typography. I even got to photograph the WSU Symphony Orchestra in their last rehearsal before a performance. As the images are shared with faculty, I’ll be working with the OTL staff to discuss them with participants in relation to their teaching practice. Here is a look at some of the photographs I’ve been editing:

I also had the privilege of speaking about the Teaching and Learning project to a packed room at the OTL’s Innovations in Teaching and Learning Luncheon. The highlight of my time at WSU was listening to faculty, administrators, and staff discuss the project and photographs in the context of their own work – and how important images are in telling the story of that work.


It was a busy few days, but so rewarding. I’ll leave you with a couple photographs of the OTL staff, just to show how fun a group they are. If you ever get the opportunity to work with these folks, take it!
