Register: Ethical images in the WASH sector online course

Hi everyone, 

The Sanitation Learning Hub has recently launched a live online course through the Institute of Development Studies short course programme, offering theoretical and practical advice on photography for people working in the WASH sector. 

Participants will learn through a mixture of presentations, group discussion and individual homework tasks.
The homework will include taking photos on chosen themes (you can  see some examples from the previous course in this blog ). We will draw on the Photovoice method and structure our live sessions around “photo dialogues” where we will explore the photos taken.

The course will include:
  • a grounding in visual literacy – how photos can be ‘read’ and interpreted as positive and negative
  • the importance of caption-writing
  • an exploration of GEDSI (gender equality, disability and social inclusion) principles.
We will also provide a reading list, workbook with accompanying exercises, and facilitation notes so you can cascade the learning to your colleagues

This builds on excellent work done elsewhere in the sector, including the SuSanA discussion series .

The course is offered on three separate sets of dates - register before 20th May to join the June course .
  • June course: 10th, 12th, 17th, 19th June (9am – 12pm)
  • July course: 8th, 10th, 15th, 17th July (1pm – 4pm)
  • August course: 5th, 7th, 12th, 14th August (9am – 12pm)
