Brief summary: This interactive, online professional development course will prepare participants to take photographs that communicate meaningful messages with power. By the end of the course, participants will be prepared to share their visual communication knowledge and skills with their Photovoice participants, patients, co-workers and organizations.

Description: 'Deep Seeing’ means the ability to ‘read’, decode, interpret, create, question, challenge and evaluate visual information, as we do text. ‘Deep seeing’ – or being visually literate -- means recognizing intentional and hidden meanings in photographs of our lives, work, and environment. It means supporting Photovoice participants in creating powerful photographs and interpreting them for others. It means better outreach and advocacy with peers, clinicians, community members, and policymakers.

In this 5-session online professional development course (10 hours total), newly retired Boston University faculty Domenic will share learning from 30-years of experience as a medical photographer, professor, and communications director. Through lecture, small group work, and photo assignments, course participants will gain knowledge and skills needed to create and select photographs that communicate thoughtfully and with power. By the end of this course, participants will have new or strengthened skills in interpreting photos for research, advocacy, and clinical care.

Upon course completion, participants will receive a Training Certificate. They will be prepared to take better photographs for personal and professional use. They will be prepared to share their ‘deep seeing’ knowledge and skills with Photovoice participants, patients, co-workers, and organizations.
