On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
1. Demonstrate the ability to determine independent goals and appropriate strategies for the achievement of those goals.
2. Demonstrate the ability to realise an independently conceived aesthetic event, achieved through a clear process of concept development and practice-led experiment and research.
3. Demonstrate the ability to handle relevant software applications to structure a clear and navigable electronic portfolio.
4. Demonstrate the ability to compose, employing a diverse range of media, creative and effective documents of self-presentation.
The module also facilitates the production of a substantial personal portfolio of material, published in electronic format, creatively presenting and documenting the student's output and arc of study to date, and indicating his/her direction of travel in the second semester and/or beyond the point of graduation. The teaching and learning of this module is structured with a view to this portfolio having an ultimate transferable value in presenting the student positively to relevant external bodies and organizations.
