Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module enables you to develop a strand of your creative practice to an advanced, resolved level. (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4) This is achieved through negotiating and planning your own creative brief. (LOs 2) You will engage with research, reflection, exploration and experimentation, which builds on the work undertaken in Project Preparation Photography. (LOs 1,2,3,4,5) Through developing your concepts, methodologies, techniques and processes you will progress your project to a successful resolution (LOs 1, 2, 3,4, 5). You will utilise an advanced level of critical analysis, evaluation and reflection (LOs 1, 5) as well as an in-depth knowledge of your specialist medium subject and context. (LOs 1, 3, 4) Your project work is supported by individual and group tutorials, group critiques and presentations, which encourage the development of work, ability to articulate ideas, and self-reflective practice. (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Lectures by visiting professionals introduce students to a range of contemporary practice and critical thinking (LOs 1, 5).

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The Final Project Photography module provides you with an opportunity to develop and resolve an advanced level of practice.
