40 credits at level HE7
This module will aim to extend the developments made in semester one, and to confirm the studio practice themes and techniques already started. Additionally, students will be required to make links outside of the studio, with a view to setting up publication of their practice. This can be through exhibition, commission, book publication, performance, or any other recognised method of artist presentation.
This module is designed to bring together contemporary practice developments
through practical (studio) engagement developed from a personally developed (series
of) project(s). This could include national and international competitions, exhibitions
and where possible live briefs. Students will:
• deal with the complex issues of the evolving nature of the specialism;
• demonstrate an advanced understanding of issues that face practitioners
through the presentation of visual work;
• further develop work in their chosen specialism from the previous module,
shows a considered collaboration with areas of industry and/or culture, this may
include the needs of external clients appropriate to the specialism chosen.
• consider the outcomes of this module as preparation for the final stage of the
Students will negotiate, through a learning agreement, a (series) of project(s) with their
supervisor and module leader, which demonstrates in-depth understandings of
contemporary professional practice within, and external to, their specialist subject area.
Underpinning this practical work, theoretical concepts will be explored, including practice-
based theoretical/cultural/technical concepts.
Teaching and contact time – 45 hours, which will be delivered through a combination of
guest lectures, seminars, external visits and presentations with tutorials both face-to-face
and on-line. Students will be allocated a supervisor from this stage of the programme and
this will normally be a subject specific individual who will support each student to
completion of the PG Diploma stage and further MA award stage.
Self-directed study - 355 hours
Total 400 hours notional learning time
when you have successfully completed this module you will:
to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcome you will:
|1.||Development of a learning agreement as a basis for development at this level and as a possible conduit for MA progression, including a business plan and time management outline.||
1.1 Clearly and coherently articulate the rationale for a proposed project on an agreed aspect of the specialism.
1.2 Clearly articulate the aims and objectives of the body of work to be produced at Stage 2.
1.3 Demonstrate responsibility for your own learning by the requirements that inform and progress your practice (e.g., research intentions and methodology, practical, contact with external agencies, access to resources and considerations of Health and Safety implications of any work undertaken, and a business plan for the project.)
1.4 Demonstrate mechanisms for reflecting upon and re-assessing the nature of your work and if necessary, how its direction will be re-negotiated
|2.||Produce a body of visual work, which is underpinned by an understanding of practice-based theoretical issues and which meets the needs, where required, of external clients, responds to competition rules etc.||
2.1 Demonstrate an in-depth awareness of, and engagement with, the context of the body of work (e.g., other work in the specialism, external clients, theoretical, philosophical, sociological, ecological methodological contexts).
2.2 Provide evidence that demonstrates ability to generate ideas independently employing a range of solutions that enhances personal creativity.
2.3 Demonstrate proficiency in observation, investigation, enquiry, visualisation and/or to a high standard of production.
2.4 Clearly display critical evaluation and reflection.
2.5 Demonstrate originality/innovation in the application of research to the final outcome(s).
Your achievement of the learning outcomes for this module will be tested as follows:
|Description||Demonstrate through an advanced body of practice the development of the chosen area of visual work responding to specific needs and which demonstrates that ethical considerations have been considered and responded to.||Present a learning agreement which outlines in detail the project to be undertaken and personal responsibilities within the development of the work and which have links to future activity at MA level.|
