  • Abstract:

    This article complements practices of critical pedagogy in tourism education, the significance of place-making in the tourism field, and applications of visual methods in tourism research. It reports a photo essay assignment and related activities conceptualized within a framework of experiential learning and designed to express a critical pedagogy of place. The process involved graduate students adopting an identity of “tourist-researcher” to experience, document, narrate, and interpret a tourist activity or destination. We argue that photo essays show promise as an instructional strategy that facilitates awareness within students of the role they play in tourism place-making.
