Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module enables you to develop a number of strands of your creative practice to an advanced level. This is achieved through research, reflection and experimentation, negotiating a learning agreement and planning your own creative brief (LOs 1, 3, 5). You will explore concepts, methodologies, techniques and processes which will enable you to progress this to a successful resolution (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4). This will be supported by individual and group tutorials, group critiques and presentations, you will engage with tutor feedback and peer group support, which encourage the development of your work and ability to articulate ideas (LO 4, 5). Lectures by visiting professionals introduce students to a range of practice and critical thinking (LOs 1, 2, 5). You will work both independently and in groups to promote skills of self-reliance within your professional practice. (LOs 1, 3, 4).

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills

Subject specific knowledge, skills and attributes, introduced and developed throughout the programme, are interlinked in a complex and dynamic practice.
