Before we begin, let us recommend to you the Assignments and Lesson Plans section of The New Eyes Project, the companion site to Teaching Photography. While those were created primarily with K-12 students in mind, you can repurpose many of them for college-level/lifelong-learning students.
We’ve found numerous sources online of assignments for post-secondary photography, visual literacy, and related issues. Here are links to those:
