Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

None


Course Description

In this studio you will apply design thinking to the design process by developing a series of digital graphic, interactive, motion and/or sound design project, in response to a brief. You will focus on applying the knowledge and skills you have developed so far to the production process.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Acquire knowledge of visual literacy and design theory, interactive and motion design, moving image, communications technologies, and digital media production skills and their application to digitally mediated communication.
  • Apply theoretical knowledge, conceptual skills and production techniques to the development of digital media solutions for communications problems.
  • Critically analyse, synthesise and reflect on the role, application and implications of digital media works in both local and international contexts. 


Course Learning Outcomes

Upon the successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Investigate and discuss how design principles extend into visual, motion, sound and interaction design.
  • Create design elements that move and/or interact with other elements within designs.
  • Conceptualise designs and create plans, prototypes and/or storyboards for diverse design projects.
  • Design and produce projects that integrate visual, motion, sound and interaction design concepts.
  • Analyse and evaluate your own work and that of your peers. 


Overview of Learning Activities

You will be actively engaged in learning that involves a range of activities such as studios, project work, lectures, tutorials, class discussion, individual and group activities.


Overview of Learning Resources

RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through our online systems.

A list of recommended learning resources will be provided by your lecturer, including books, journal articles and web resources. You will also be expected to seek further resources that are relevant to the focus of your own learning.

There are services available to support your learning, including the University Library and Study Support services. For further information, please visit the Library page on the RMIT University website and the myRMIT student portal.


Overview of Assessment

You will be assessed on how well you meet the course’s learning outcomes and on your development against the program learning outcomes. Assessment may include projects, assignments, critiques, reports and presentations, individually and/or in groups.

Assessment will cover both practical and theoretical aspects of your learning. You will be able to develop your work in relation to your own specific areas of interest in your professional practice.

Feedback will be given on all assessment tasks.
