Helping Adult Learners Tell Their Stories Using Photo-Literature: The FotoDialogo Method
This presentation will focus on the use of the FotoDialogo Method as a research and education tool to engage adult learners in dialogue.
The presentation will provide ideas for those in community-based education regarding methodological issues of recording and portraying adult learners’ lifelines. It will argue that the use of learner-produced photo-literature not only entices the unveiling of personal histories, but it also provides an appropriate atmosphere for the sharing of collective experiences.
