Description of module content:

The purpose of this module is to give you the opportunity to do work on a project that will challenge your current practices and which may involve completely experimental and exploratory methods. The idea is that, by engaging in unfamiliar practices and methods, you will develop different ways of working, encounter the works and practices of others, and this will benefit your development as practitioners, scholars, artists, and researchers.

Activity in this module is primarily student-led, and supported by seminars in which you will engage critically with staff and peers by providing and receiving constructive criticism, feedback, and support. When you have selected an area of research/practice you will be assigned a supervisor, from whom you will receive guidance and support throughout the module in the form of three 1:1 tutorials.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Critically engage with appropriate fields of research to locate your practice within this network;

LO2: Appraise and evaluate literature and practice (which may include scores, recordings, or other artefacts as well as written sources) of the field to which you are contributing.

LO3: Through the most appropriate medium, create a response to research questions devised through your literature/practice reviews.

LO4: Communicate, using appropriate methods, with a range of participants, groups, and audiences with different levels of knowledge/expertise.
