Investigating the Learning and Cognitive Process With Phenomenography: A Case Study of a Visual Experimental Research Course

Abstract

Experiential learning theory emphasizes on the importance of learning through experiences and reflection. Recently, the question of how to implement a teaching strategy has attracted great attention from educators. In this study, we designed a course on the theme of death. During this course, students were expected to learn reflectively and eventually create a video to interpret their conception of death for digital advocacy. To evaluate the course’s effectiveness, we used phenomenography and iconology as a tool for rolling action research for different course stages. The results suggest that designs of experiential learning activities made the students’ interpretation of death more positive, while creative practices encouraged students to focus on presenting their understandings with a higher level of certainty.
