Abstract / Summary

This presentation reflects on the experiences of a wholly online MA Photography, from both staff and student perspectives. It will practically outline the challenges and successes in creating and maintaining this global community of practice from both pedagogic and technological perspectives. Sontag describes photographs as ‘packaging the world’, of making it smaller (1977:4), whilst Manovich (2017) comments on its global nature and reach. It is therefore ironic that formal photographic education has, so far, remained relatively dependent on fixed locations and face-to-face delivery models as opposed to the adaptive, flexible and inclusive model that the online environment can encourage.
