87900 Critical Practice: Project24cp
Requisite(s): 87931 Researching: Contexts AND 87932 Researching: Materials AND 87933 Critical Practice: Experimentation
In this subject, students extend their self-directed research and experimental design processes from the previous session, leading to the development and presentation of a refined design response. Outcomes may be realised in any media and may take the form of a designed object or process, a portfolio of experiments, an extended piece of critical writing, or a combination of these three.
Students are mentored to undertake critical analysis, synthesis and reflective evaluation as the intellectual basis of their working methodology. Students are required to independently define and address issues relating to appropriate use of technology and production processes, user testing, production scheduling and project management, and the appropriateness of design form to communicative intent. Assessment is undertaken by a panel of academics advised by external practitioner-researchers.
Students also submit a written dissertation situating their work within a theoretical and social context.
