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

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
This module promotes visual and oral communication skills [presentation / role-playing exercises] & interpersonal/leadership skills [group project/ problem based learning] whereby students are helped to plan, record and critically 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 given to promote student confidence and allow practise of public speaking and design management. There are two assessment points the module for which students will be asked to present their directed study tasks in the form of sketch-books (LOs 1, 2) drawings, models (physical & virtual) (LOs 2, 3, 4,) and presentation (printed boards, video etc) (LO 5) 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 E

Description of module content:

Studio-based design projects form the core of the module. You are required to critically explore design proposals in response to project briefs that deal 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: Generate ideas and design proposals through a critical assessment of design research
LO2: Critically explore key elements of exhibition design, including circulation, lighting, signage, and user interaction and experience
LO3: Challenge conventions in exhibition design and engage in critical dialogue
LO4: Conceptualise and justify design outcomes and design interventions
LO5: Critically reflect on design outcomes in relation to thematic contexts and the stated objectives of the project brief
