Individual Research Courses may be undertaken as electives. Approval of individual Research courses is subject to the approval of a detailed Research Plan and the availability of appropriate resources.
Courses are built around individually negotiated semester-long projects on a topic which is not otherwise offered by the School of Art. Each individual Research Course is to be described in a document which is drawn up in negotiation between the student and the assigned Workshop Supervisor by reference to a template which describes the project in terms of 1. Aims, 2. Methods and Resources, 3. Context, and 4. Anticipated Outcomes.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
At the completion of this course, students should be able to:
- devise a detailed study/research program
- identify and develop experimental strategies
- communicate research outcomes in visual and written forms
- evaluate their own work and the work of others relevant to the project
The progressive outcomes of the approved research project are assessed by periodic supervisory contact plus review sessions and end-of-semester presentation to an assessment panel. Supervision sessions will provide advice on work in progress in response to approved projects, reviews will provide indicative advice on a student's achievement in relation to the submitted plan, and the end of semester presentation will assess the final outcomes against the agreed requirements.
