Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
A variety of audio visual resources, group discussion and self directed methods (independent learning and study) will be used. These methods are designed to foster and underpin student engagement and academic progression, whilst sensitive to a range of learning styles. You will undertake drawing exercises (LO1) and use these skills to visualise design outcomes from design activities (LO2), and prepare ideas for 3D modelling (LO3). The resultant visual material will be collated for persuasive presentation (LOs 1,2,6). You will also undertake case studies in interior & spatial design (LOs 3,4,5).

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
This module promotes the development of visual and verbal communication skills, (presentation/ group discussion) and problem based learning. Guest speakers and site visits offer opportunities for evaluating the application of skills in industry. Students are supported in planning, recording, and reflecting upon their experiences through sketch-books and journals to develop employability and self awareness while understanding how their transferable skills might be applied in new settings.

Assessment (formative and summative)
You will undertake three studio design projects (which will require the submission of a folio of sketching and drawing [LOs 1, 2, 3 ,4, 5], models [LO3, 5] and presentation boards [LO6]) and one contextual presentation (10 minute slide show: 8-10 slides) [LO3,4,5] – see section 18. Formative assessment will precede the submission and/or presentation of completed design assignments. You will be asked to report on your directed study task and feedback will be given to develop your confidence and allow practise of oral presentation and critique. You will be asked to present your directed study tasks and summative assessment given of submitted work during critiques and feedback tutorials.

Description of module content:

You will establish competencies in drawing, model making and graphic presentation to illustrate project-based spatial and contextual analysis, and to communicate design ideas and the creative and conceptual processes that define your project development.
As directed by tutors, case studies will be presented and discussed in tutorials to characterize and contextualise the discipline of Interior and Spatial Design.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module, you will be able to:
LO1: Verbally articulate and graphically illustrate the principles of drawing and sketching for Interior and Spatial Design
LO2: Communicate design ideas and creative processes through the mediums of drawing, physical modelling and graphic representation
LO3: Develop an awareness of spatial arrangements and configurations in response to a project brief
LO4: Contextualise and organise decision-making processes
LO5: Gain an appreciation of the relationship between form and function
LO6: Present design outcomes using a clear, appropriate and persuasive oral and visual language.
