oa Journal of Education - From our frames : exploring with teachers the pedagogic possibilities of a visual arts-based approach to HIV and AIDS
This article profiles the visual arts-based methodology used for a short project set up to explore the uses of a visual arts-based approach for addressing HIV and AIDS through teacher development. It also attempts to explain how visual arts-based approaches to addressing HIV and AIDS may contribute to more creative and culturally contextualised research and pedagogy to address HIV and AIDS within the education sector. The project was undertaken at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in response to the suggestions that teachers need to explore their own understanding, attitudes and perceptions of the disease if they are to deal confidently with the demands HIV and AIDS places on them as educators in schools. Methods for the approach were adapted from the work of Ewald and Lightfoot (2001) and from Wangï¿½s (1999) photo-voice.
