The purpose of this study is to develop the visual journal as a pedagogical tool for student engagement, one speaking to the hermeneutic principle of questioning fueled by experience and in search of understanding. Through the merging of visual data sources, arts based analysis and time lapse videos I seek to show the interconnectedness of research and educative processes through work in and around a visual journal. Given the significance of visual forms of communication in arts education, this study seeks a further understanding of the usefulness of arts-based and image-based practices, specifically the visual journal, in promoting an understanding of identity as part of how we (both participant and researcher) negotiate understandings and formulate knowledge.
