This unit offers you the opportunity to deepen your insights into contemporary art and design practices, issues and the critical debates associated with them. Programmes of study, which are largely self-determined but supported by tutorial guidance are aimed at helping you to create a context in which you can place your emerging practical work so that ultimately your major project will have an underpinning critical and contextual rationale. Your learning will involve you in developing and implementing research strategies and is structured through learning agreements that take account of the nature and needs of your project.
You will also be expected to reflect on the nature of your learning with a view to giving you a clearer perspective on your personal and professional development.
