This Learning to Teach Online http://bit.ly/d18ac5 case study aims to give you a basic understanding of the website http://flickr.com, by explaining how Lynette Zeeng from Swinburne University of Technology used it to teach photography in a blended (face-to-face and online) class. It discusses the benefits of using an online community for submitting, organising and giving feedback on images, and the impact on student learning. Key issues surrounding pedagogic planning and teaching with Flickr that were encountered in this context of the case study will also be examined, highlighting the benefits and potential issues of adopting this approach.
