Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to Los
The module provides you with an opportunity to examine, and engage in practice relating to, specific photographic genres. A series of lectures and workshops, followed by discussions, examine the work of practitioners in a variety of genres and introduce you to the key concepts, techniques and processes used in this specialist area of practice, while technical demonstrations introduce you to the main technical skills and equipment used. (LO 1). Individual and group tutorials, seminars and critiques take place throughout to provide you with formative feedback and give you the opportunity to develop further skills in articulating and communicating ideas (LO 2). You will underpin practical work with written research in terms of a project synopsis, self assessment and technical and creative workbooks to develop skills in reflective practice, research and critical thinking as well as requiring independent and autonomous initiative at a professional level (LO 3).
Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The module provides you with an opportunity to examine, and engage in projects relating to a specialist area of photographic practice. The knowledge, skills and attributes employed in your practice are also central to employability: creativity, self motivation and flexibility; self awareness and reflection, allowing you to evaluate your own learning, performance and achievements; the development of an individual practice which suits your interests and aspirations; the effective use of key intellectual, specialist and transferable skills; and a knowledge of the professional requirements of your chosen specialism.
Assessment (formative or summative)
You will undertake two components of assessment during the module. Project 1 comprising two elements: a workbook (LO 1 ), and a project submission (LO 3). Project 2 comprising two elements: a workbook (LO 2), and a project submission (LO 2, 3 ). Thr
