This course will build on and further develop a range of skills, competencies and understanding to enable the student to resolve and communicate a design-focused project to a high level. The project is based on an Individual Work Proposal (IWP) developed in consultation with academic staff of the student’s major discipline area. The student’s verbal and written documentation and communication of their design project will be integral to their studies. The presentation of their authentic work will aim to articulate the contextual design-based framework of their approach through theoretical, historical and critical references. Planning, resolving a design-project while documenting and presenting it in a professional setting, will assist students to develop their design practice.

Workplace Health and Safety instruction is an integral part of this course and will be handled within each Workshop.
