In this course students will engage with the phenomena of globalisation and produce work responding to the problems and opportunities it presents. The premise is that making offers distinctive and valuable methods to understand and respond to a rapidly changing world. Students will participate in dynamic lectures, tutorials and other activities that focus on globalisation. Assessment tasks will provide clear parameters for projects, ensuring students interrogate and critically respond to the presented themes in a personal manner.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. identify and articulate an advanced critical position on globalisation;
  2. evidence independent exploration and refinement of ideas through materials and process;
  3. develop applied samples and/or evidence process towards finished works that extend the potential of material(s) used;
  4. realise, document and present finished work demonstrating sophisticated relationships between conceptual frameworks and practice; and
  5. critically engage with historical and theoretical contexts relevant to the production, display, distribution, viewing and use of creative works.
