Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module is a combination of tutor-directed methods [lectures and tutorials] and uses a wide variety of audio-visual resources, peer directed activities [group work] and self directed methods [independent learning and study]. These methods are designed to underpin your engagement with design and academic progression whilst sensitive to, deep, surface and strategic approaches to learning.

Through studio design projects you will engage with precedent studies of prominent spatial design schemes (LO5) and formal visual language (LO1,6); you will be given simple design problems to research and develop (sketchbooks) (LO1,5) and represent using formal visual language systems (LO2,3,4,5,6) including basic use of digital media (LO1,6)

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
This module includes the development of written and oral communication skills and interpersonal and leadership skills. You will plan, record and reflect upon your experiences to develop your employability and self awareness whilst building an awareness of your transferable skills to a range of employment settings.

Assessment (formative and summative)
For each assessment component throughout the module, you will be asked to report on their directed study task and formative feedback will be given to develop your confidence and allow practise of public speaking and design management.

On three occasions you will be asked to present your directed study tasks for summative assessment at critiques, which will include the use of image based media in the form of design development (sketchbooks) drawings (LOs 1,6), presentation boards (LOs 2,3,4,5,6). Verbal feedback will be provided after each presentation to build your confidence and allow practise of public speaking and presentation techniques and recorded feedback is provided at the end of the module. (See section 18)

Description of module content:

You will further develop skills in drawing, model making and graphic presentation in order to explore issues fundamental to ‘space making’ such as; proportion, scale, volume, spatial organisation, sequential space, composition, material and texture, and the role of light in architectural space. As directed by tutors, case studies and selected texts will be presented and discussed in tutorials to advance the understanding of the theoretical contexts within which you work.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module, you will be able to:
LO1: Communicate design ideas, creative processes and project realisation through a range of visual media.
LO2: Develop spatial arrangements in response to a project brief through the consideration of physical and contextual factors
LO3: Design spaces with an awareness of human needs
LO4: Define the relationship between form and function
LO5: Gain an appreciation of the role of design theory in the design process.
LO6: Identify and select contextual, spatial, structural and material representation techniques for presentation purposes.
