    Abstract

    The purpose of this research is to inquire into the experience of how tutors use visual images and web-based technology in the classroom to get students to critically reflect on their learning. In this qualitative study, I interviewed 4 tutors based at the same Further Education centre working in different disciplines to gain an insight into their pedagogical approaches and uses of visuals and web-based technology with their students. Most of the participants found that it had a positive effect on how students critically reflect on their learning. Within this research, I have applied a Freirean approach which promotes critical reflection on learning for students.
