Description of module content:

This module will be delivered via blending learning with some face to face lectures but with an emphasis on online learning materials, tutorials, peer feedback and support. This will be combined with regular technical workshops to support you with additional face to face contact and feedback. Discussion forums will be used to encourage interaction within the class and to enable peer review on work. Through practical exercises you will apply key technical and creative concepts to your image making practice in either photography or video. You will develop and apply the skills appropriate to the basic principles of workflow, including image capture and post-production processes.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Lectures and on-line tutorials will support the completion of technical exercises (LO1, LO2, LO3, LO5). These in turn support the abilities required to complete creative projects to given briefs that will develop your image making skills (LO2, LO3, LO4, LO5). Technical workshops will be scheduled to provide face to face contact and to give demonstration and training in the practical skills and provide support to ensure that you acquire and understand the skills and appropriate risk assessment and health and safety procedures.
There will be 2 summative assessments. The first will involve the completion of a series of projects to given briefs (LO2,LO3,LO4,LO5). The second will form a written critique of photographic and/or filmic works and this will take the form of a blog (LO1, LO4, LO5).
A comprehensive list of references will be supplied in order to support creative and technical process, these will incorporate videos, books and websites.

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
The module provides you with an essential understanding of creative camera techniques and digital workflow, which are essential skills to have in a range of professions within and outwith the creative industries. The practical outcomes of the coursework can be used as part of creative portfolios and showreels.

Assessment (formative and summative)
You will undertake two components of summative assessment during the module. Component 1 The critical blog will demonstrate your understanding of the main theories, concepts and principles involved in creative camera techniques and digital workflow (LO1,LO4,LO5).
Component 2 is the completion of a series of project briefs covering camera techniques and workflow. Due to the ever evolving nature of the topic of this module, projects will be defined in response to the technological considerations that are relevant at the time of delivery (LO2,LO3,LO4,LO5)..
