Learning activities will take place in a studio, workshop or classroom using industry standard tools and resources. You will complete exercises and industry style projects. You will also be required to undertake independent study.

In Class Activities may include:
• Peer presentations & learning
• Group discussion
• On-line investigation
• Class exercises to review discussions
• Studio practice

Out of class activities will include:
• Online research
• Independent project based work
• Gallery & exhibition visits

Self-Directed Learning - Some activities will include a self-directed learning approach; self-directed
learning refers to organised activities that students undertake independently, either as
individuals or with other students that are supervised by a teacher. This may include workplace
research, library assignments. Field trips and work placements.
