Can photographers teach educators anything?

Next week Grant Scott and I are in conversation for ClickClickJim in Brighton , it's free and we'd love you to come, but if you can't make it to the seaside then in the spirit of the open classes - we'd like you to shout down the interwebular tubes instead, either by chipping in here (comment) or tweeting (please use the hashtag #PhotoEd ).

We'll then add your comments/tweets into the mix on the night and it'll be like you were in the room with us, fightin' the good fight.

So, here's the question:
"Can photographers teach educators anything about "teaching", about "photography" or about "teaching photography"?

ClickclickJim Talk with Hungry Eye. July 3rd Brighton.

I'm in conversation with Grant Scott of HungryEye next week, be great to meet up in person if you're able to drop by.


 A few months ago, as part of their regular series of podcasts, editor of Hungry Eye Magazine (and collaborator / supporter of the miniclick talks) Grant Scott invited the creator of the world’s first open undergraduate photography course, Jonathan Worth for a chat. Jonathan’s PICBOD and PHONAR courses at Coventry University are free and available to all online and have caused a bit of a stir. His conversation with Grant proved to be one of Hungry Eye’s most popular podcasts and created a significant amount of debate and comments on the social media networks. Personally, after listening, I felt fired up and ready to start a revolution so I’m really looking forward to seeing the two of them discuss some similar themes (the current state of the industry, it’s future, photography education…) on Tuesday July, 3rd.
The talk will be on Tuesday July 3rd at The Old Market in Brighton & Hove. Doors are at 6:30pm and entry, as always, is free!
