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 research and data collection within design precedents (LO 1,2) and use this to inform your design process (LOs 2,3). You will visualise design outcomes and prepare ideas for 3D modelling (LO4,5). The resultant visual material will be collated for persuasive presentation (LO 4). You will reflect on your design project outcomes through a visual and verbal presentation (LO6).

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
This module promotes visual and oral communication skills [presentation / role-playing exercise] & interpersonal/leadership skills [group project/ problem based learning] whereby students are helped to plan, record and reflect upon their experiences in a way that develops their employment related skills and self awareness whilst understanding how their transferable skills might be applied in new settings.

Assessment (formative, summative)
Throughout the module, students will be asked to report on their directed study task and formative feedback [i.e. mark-ups] given to promote student confidence and allow practise of public speaking and design management. On two occasions throughout the module students will be asked to present their directed study tasks in the form of sketch-books (LOs 1,2, 3) drawings, models (physical & virtual) (LOs 3,4,5) and presentation boards (LO 6) for summative assessment.

Research/ teaching linkages
All teaching team members undertake scholarly activity, through the Centre for Design Practice and Research, with design projects and organisations allowing currency and credibility of input. The module establishes links between Edinburgh Napier’s research and teaching

Formative Assessment:

Description of module content:

Studio-based design projects form the core of the module. You are required to formulate successful design proposals in response to a project brief that deals with the exhibition and display of objects and/or narrative. In developing design proposals you are required to undertake thematic, contextual and material research and to illustrate how your design solutions provide for enhanced user experience and interaction in a defined exhibition environment.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: Implement appropriate thematic, contextual and material research methods
LO2: Produce design proposals through a critical assessment of research
LO3: Apply knowledge of key elements of exhibition design (circulation, lighting, signage, and user interaction and experience)
LO4: Construct persuasive and informative 3D CAD rendered CAD drawings
LO5: Prepare industry standard visual instructions for construction, manufacture, and installation
LO6: Critically reflect design outcomes in relation to thematic contexts and the stated objectives of the project brief.
