This poster focuses on sharing the idea of applying photovoice as research methodology in a collaborative action research during the journey of teacher education. Photovoice is regarded as a powerful tool in serving as a bridge between teacher educators and student teachers in creating and documenting their reflective dialogues in their learning experiences in teacher education. Participants (i.e. teacher educators and student teachers) are engaged in different phases of action research collectively - from action planning to implementation to reflection - where photos are collected at different stages to developing emergent themes for generating and igniting constructive discussion and critical reflection. Implications for the development of employing photovoice in teacher education and professional learning will then be discussed.
