Approach to learning and assessment
The program is offered predominantly in a face-to-face learning environment. Courses will use a variety of learning and teaching approaches and formats including: seminars, studios, lectures and tutorials. Activities include:
- collaborative group work
- negotiated learning
- self-directed practice
- peer review
You can also expect to engage with case studies, problem-based learning and reflective techniques such as blogs and journals. Learning will be in a reflective practice framework. Online resources and activities will further support your learning.
You will learn how to constructively critique your own work and that of others. Peer learning and review are integral to the learning environment in the program, as well as for your ongoing professional practice within the creative industries.
Assessment involves ‘learning by doing’ and will include a range of activities such as:
- written reflection
- research projects
- peer or industry review
Individual project proposals and presentations will be supported by research. They will relate to industry specific issues and/or theoretical constructs impacting on textile design. You will have the opportunity to work with and/or for industry practitioners on solving contemporary issues in the field.
Assessment is designed so that your lecturers and peers can provide you with formative feedback on strengths and areas for improvement. This will enable you to improve on your performance during the program, as well as continue to refine capabilities for your future engagement within the area of textile design and learning after graduation.
The Major Project in your final semester will be a capstone experience designed as a culmination of your learning throughout the program and provide a segue to your future career pathway.
