Language Centre English Plus & UAL Winter Presessional 2011 Collaboration
Tutor Amanda Adorni (23rd November 2011) -
‘Today my English Plus students and the Winter Presessional students went to visit the World Press Photo 2011 exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall on South Bank. The aim of the trip was for the students to practise their communication skills in both visual and image analysis and group discussions. The students worked in mixed-nationality groups of three or four . They viewed the photos together and discussed them. They then made sketches or notes and practised written visual analysis. Finally for reflective practise the students regrouped to work with different students and they talked about their views and feelings about the images and the experience of working in their groups.
After the productive and thought-provoking work of the morning everyone had tea and cake overlooking the Thames. The exhibition ends soon but it is on every year and you can see some of the images on the website:
