Synthesising approaches to openness

Jonathan Worth

This report narrates the implementation of a radically new approach to photography teaching, which magnifies the classroom experience through the affordances of social media and networked environments; these classes also embody the issues they seek to explore.

About the author

For 15 years Jonathan Worth was a self-employed professional photographer with studios in London and New York but, with an industry and economic model approaching seismic change, the digital disruptions to the profession meant he had to re-navigate it as a co-learner in his own open classes. Over the last four years he has developed a radically new approach to teaching, which magnifies the classroom experience through the affordances of social media and networked environments.
