Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Each taught input uses a wide variety of audio-visual resources, site visits, group discussion and activity to foster student engagement. You will engage with group workshops for exploring the application of CAD/CAM in large scale manufacture, material selction, and product analysis: Accurately assess offshore manufacturing as an option [LO1]. You will critically reflect upon Issues around costs, interlectual property and sustainibility in material procurement and manufacture [LO2&3]. Examine the relationship between UK design activity and overseas manufacture [LO4]. Produce design information and management documentation for the accurate dissemination of designed artefacts [LO5]

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The projects will explore good practice in the design industry, and with overseas manufacturers, fabrication facilities and material procurement. The module will examine the global carbon footprint of internationally manufactured goods. Guest speakers offer the opportunity for application of skills in Industry and job search strategy. Critical appraisal and reflection are also required at every assessment stage.

Assessment (formative or summative)
Formative assessment is provided throughout the module within personal and group tutorials and interim reviews/critiques. Summative assessment occurs twice on this module: in week 7 for a applied design project, 10 minute presentation, technical analysis [LO1&2], CAD modelling and presentation[LO5], weighted at 50% and in week 14 for an applied design project, 10 minute visual presentation with CAD modelling and presentation [LO5], cultural and economic analysis [LO 3,4] weighted at 50% [see section 18]. Presentations are made to an assessment panel and peers.

Research / teaching linkages
All teaching team members undertake scholarly activity within design and architecture allowing currency and credibility of input. The mod

Description of module content:

You will undertake two design projects based in the studio. The projects are designed for you to explore emerging global design and manufacturing theory and practice .You will also review the impact of design, materials and manufacturing decisions upon costs . The application of digital data (CAD/CAM) will be employed for implementing manufacturing processes and as a method of visual communication to transcend language barriers.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: Determine opportunities within overseas manufacture.
LO2: Apply knowledge of logistical issues (supply and transportation) and IPR
LO3: Estimate costs, and evaluate designs for cost reduction.
LO4: Explore the protection of design through the registration Intellectual Property
LO5: Prepare design data for manufacture using industry conventions.
