Official title: Tutorial Leader, Photography
Taught two classes of Introductory Photography (20 students each) for the duration of two semesters. Students were instructed in basic optics, 35 mm camera operation, natural lighting and flash photography. They were given weekly assignments which followed course guidelines, yet allowed the Instructor to effect changes where necessary to accommodate the progression and interests of the individual classes. B&W darkroom instruction included film processing, RC and Fiber printing, solarization, toning, mounting, hand-colouring and non-silver processes. Lectures and slide presentations on the History of Photography and photo-related artistic practices were prepared and presented by the tutorial leader. Periodically the students participated in open critiques and received personal evaluations by the instructor with regards to their own work. Field trips were organized on my initiative, which included studio visits with local artists and an introduction to historic and contemporary work in the gallery setting. The daily set-up and break-down of the communal darkroom was the responsibility of the Instructor, along with trouble shooting the darkroom facilities for the duration of the class. The final term portfolios, Fall and Spring sessions, of all seven Introductory Photography classes (140 students) were marked jointly by myself and two other instructors.
