Description

This module develops the student’s professional, presentation and communication skills. Students develop a reflective and graphic portfolio and curriculum vitae. Students consolidate and present their learning experience and skills, whilst enhancing their self-knowledge and aspirations as Interior architects and designers

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Reflect critically upon their own practice and experience in relation to its strengths, weaknesses and related limitations and opportunities.

2.

Articulate their potential role and responsibilities, as well as their theoretical and ethical positions and world view within the profession of interior architecture and design.

3.

Demonstrate competency in the preparation and compilation of an integrated set of contract documentation appropriate to the size and scope of a student design project.

4.

Compose and collate a coherent and articulate written and graphic portfolio to a professional industry standard.

5.

Compose and communicate an articulate and focused exhibition presentation using appropriate graphic and written modes.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

The module  is delivered using a combination of lectures,  group and individual  tutorials, from a ‘live’/streamed teaching space in which both on-site and distance participants can see both each other and the work under discussion. This flexible mode allows both staff and students to interact in small study groups, with the freedom for interaction either on- site or from a distance.  Through lecture, discussion and case study demonstration, students are encouraged to reflect on their own body of work ( technical and design capabilities, specialisms and vision, limitations and opportunities); relate it to the profession of Interior architecture and to develop their graphic skills in the preparation of a written and graphic reflective portfoilio.

Module Assessment Strategies

The learning outcomes are embodied summatively in the student's graphic and written reflective portfolio. Formative assessment occurs through individual and group presentation and discussion throughout the module.

Repeat Assessments

Re submission of the reflective portfoilio.
