This is a journal of thoughts on teaching, particularly in response to the set reading for my PG Cert Academic Practice. I am Lewis Bush, a photographer, writer/researcher, occasional curator, and lecturer in photojournalism and documentary photography at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. You can read a long, boring biography of all the things I’ve done here.
My practice as a photographer and writer is largely concerned with ideas about the way power is created, sustained, circulated and appropriated in the world, and the role of technology in these things. These are interests which extend to my teaching, where I am interested in the imbalances of power that arise in classrooms and institutions, and the question of teacher’s aims and loyalties. I am also interested in finding ways to help students combine theory and practice, and technology assisted learning.
