Throughout the book, What Teaching Looks Like: Higher Education through Photographs, by Cassandra Volpe Horii and Martin Springborg, readers see and read discussions related to images made at a wide variety of US colleges and universities. Martin Springborg has been visiting campuses as part of the larger photodocumentary endeavor, The Teaching and Learning Project, since 2005. This supplemental resource provides sample institutional visit schedules, with identifying details removed, to provide a sense of what such a visit could include. It is intended to help institutions undertaking photographic projects, whether they involve a visiting photographer (as was the case in these examples), or whether photographers from the institution or local community make images. The schedules may be helpful if you are planning a multi-day effort; the range of types of classes and settings may also be helpful if you are thinking about enhancing photographs representing teaching and learning on a more ongoing basis.
