It introduces key issues, concepts and tensions in order to help you develop a critical approach and respond to the changing fields of education and visual culture. Accessible, comprehensive chapters will stimulate thinking and understanding in relation to theory and practice, and help you to reach your own informed judgements and argue your point of view with deeper theoretical knowledge and understanding.
