An integrated e-learning platform, VisualNarrative, has been developed based on the principle of a modified social science research method called “photo-elicitation” for the eight University General Education courses offered by the School of Life Sciences. It is designed to enhance the coherence of UGEB courses with various aspects of life science fields, foster the critical and creative thinking of students with multiple perspectives and encourage students’ unique personal interpretations on real-life situations. In this poster presentation, we would like to introduce the features of our e-learning platform and share the feedbacks from teachers and students based on our implementation trials. The pedagogical perspectives of the e-learning platform and its implementation will also be discussed.
