Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
The module provides you with an opportunity to focus your research and further develop your previous knowledge within specific image making concepts. A series of illustrated lectures, followed by discussions, examine the work of practitioners in a variety of genres (with reference to themes around subjectivity and difference), expanding and developing on a basic knowledge of key concepts, techniques and processes. Individual and group tutorials and group critiques take place throughout to provide you with formative feedback. You will underpin practical work with written research in terms of a Learning Contract (LO 1,2,3,4,5,6), self assessment (LO 1,2,3,4,5,6) and technical and creative workbooks (LO 1,2,3,4,5,6) to develop your skills in reflective practice, research and critical thinking. After submission of a learning contract, students undertake a self-initiated project, negotiated with tutors (LO 1,2,3,4,5,6).

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 photographic specialism.

Assessment (formative and summative)
You will undertake a single project during the module with three assessable components. You will complete a practical project set by a given brief (element 1). You will document and record your creative and professional process via a research dossier including workbooks, diari
