Description of module content:

In this module, you will have the opportunity to develop ways in which you think about, contextualise, and critique your own work in your chosen practice field. You will discuss and critique various ways of thinking about music specific to a range of disciplines and fields in order to frame your understanding of your own practice and its location within the wider field and community of practice.
If you are currently engaged in practice-based research this module will be invaluable for demonstrating the research content of work where this is not immediately apparent from the artefact, but all students, including those adopting more traditional academic practices, will participate in an ongoing questioning and contextualisation of what you are doing and how you are doing it.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Generate original ideas on the basis of research questions and artistic processes;

LO2: Critically assess the significance of your practice within the research field in which you are operating;

LO3: Evaluate your practice through the lens of appropriate theoretical frameworks;

LO4: Analyse and appraise your process of discovery and creation;

LO5: Engage in critical dialogue with other practice and practitioners within the research field in which you are operating.
