Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs:

Lectures introduce and develop an understanding of practice and contextualisation, while technical demonstrations and workshops will introduce technical skills.
These are combined and developed in group tutorials, pin-ups and presentations. These are based around student’s own work, through set exercises (LO1 & LO2) and projects (LO3) with reflective self assessment and analysis of learning (LO4).

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
This module requires you to consider and develop time management and project management skills and the ability to work within guidelines. It encourages the student to explore and develop key technical abilities both in studio and location. The module also requires the student to develop technical skills, visual strategies and the confidence to translate ideas effectively into visual media.

Assessment (formative and summative)
You will engage in formative assessment and benefit from peer feedback in tutorials and presentations, as well as producing two projects (LOs 1,2 & 3) and a learning log/workbook (LOs 1, 2 & 4) for this module for summative assessment. These will be assessed on technical competence, research, presentation and resolution of ideas.

Research/ teaching linkages
This module is supported by staff interests and ongoing exploration of the context and subject matter of contemporary photographic practice.

Supporting equality and diversity
The programme aims to recruit students from a wide range of social, racial and cultural backgrounds. The module incorporates this diversity into the learning process by encouraging students to draw on their personal experiences in both discussions and practice. ~Students are introduced to a range of issues about identity and will begin to develop creative ways of thinking and working with them. The module is supported by VLE.

Internationalisation
You are introduced to a range of internation

Description of module content:

On this module you will further develop lighting and studio processes. The work will explore issues of subjectivity and presentation techniques. You will use a variety of camera formats, light sources and image processing techniques to complete the practical projects. You will produce 2 projects and a workbook, which further develops your knowledge of applications in practice and documents your research, experimentation and organisation of your work.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: Develop an awareness of a range of practical skills and techniques in photographic practice to interpret and realise ideas
LO2: Recognise technical competence in a range of traditional and emerging photographic technologies and processes.
LO3: Identify a range of approaches used in addressing defined and routine problems within the disciplines of photography
LO4: Gain an appreciation of working practices and responsibilities necessary to carrying out and evaluating tasks.
