  4. Reflect critically on their own work.
  5. Articulate an investigation's key concerns and reference points.
  6. Create a body of experimental objects or works.

Other Information

The progressive outcomes of studio practice based courses are assessed by periodic critique plus review sessions and end-of-semester presentation to an assessment panel. Critique sessions will provide advice on work in progress in response to approved projects, reviews will provide indicative advice on a student's achievement, and the end of semester presentation will assess the final outcomes against the agreed requirements of course projects.

Indicative Assessment

Practice-led research proposal: 10%, [Learning Outcomes 1 and 2] - due week 2 [600-800wds]

Studio Practice Project: 70% (due week 15) [Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 6] - due week 15

Studio Journal and critical reflection: 20% [Learning Outcomes 4 and 5] - due week 15, (reflection: 800 - 1000 words)

The Critical Reflection analyses and evaluates the project and relates it to its contextual framework.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

Practice-led Research courses are conducted at the School of Art in the relevant Workshop studios, or at other locations by agreement between the student and the Course Convenor. Students are expected to spend 4 honours per week undertaking the approved project and attend relevant seminars and critiques as specified by each Workshop. Students are also expected to spend 6 hours per week on readings and research, visiting galleries or on other visual and theoretical research.
