Module Guide & Brief

Personal Project 2 Module credit points: 20 Semester: 2 Module Tutors: Steve Gibson, Joyce Yee, Trevor Sewell, Ben SalemBernard Contact details: Stephen.gibson@northumbria.ac.uk, joyce.yee@ northumbria.ac.uk, ben.salem@northumbria.ac.uk, t.sewell@ northumbria.ac.uk Technical instructor: TBC Brief This module can be completed in one of two ways. 1) It can be combined with DE0972 Final Project, creating a double module (40 Credits) 2) It can be a single module (20 Credits). The aim of this module brief is to enable students to continue to resolve theer design solutiuons from Semester 1, or begin to engage with a new design problem. Students will create two deliverables, a prototype and a design document. You are required to create (or finalise) your prototype into a completed project and to write a document critically justifying your approach and methodology taken. The exact subject material for the project is self-determined but the module content will embrace; visual and verbal preparation of design proposals, research and investigation; assessment of goals, audience, content and design requirements; prototype development and evaluation. Work Requirements 1. Prototype - created using the most appropriate tools to resolve your design problem or concept. 2. Design Document: The document will be structured in a similar way to previous design documents undertaken during your second year. You will all be expected to meet with your primary tutors on a weekly basis, with the exception of the Midterm and Final Presentations and the Reading and Spring Break. Your individual tutor will schedule individual or group meeting times during these slots. Timetable Please see DE0972_Final_Project_brief_2014 for a weekly timetable

Module Synopsis This module aims to give students the opportunity to develop their design knowledge and expertise in a specialist design area of their own choice. It will involve the development, realisation and presentation of a design prototype and a supporting an analytical design document critically justifying the project and its final solution. Aims 1. To provide evidence of intellectual achievement, skills and creative techniques, appropriate to the graduating designer through autonomous learning. 2. To develop a holistic approach to design development and to synthesise these skills through a design solution. 3. To demonstrate skills and ability to critically justify and evaluate their work. Learning, Teaching and Assessment The module will consist of directed and independent learning by the student. The final project will be formatively and summatively assessed.Formative assessment will be provided through tutorials or formal presentations. Summative assessment will be carried out through presentation of design prototype and supporting design documentation.Specialist support will be made available through primary tutors, chosen from the breadth of staff experience and dependent upon the subject area chosen by the student. Learning Outcomes: 1. Apply comprehensive analytical research to complex design issues and topics leading to holistic design-related outputs or solutions 2. Demonstrate independent creative thinking and judgement in the pursuit of solutions to complex design problems and issues 3. Analytically apply design skills and techniques to produce design solutions to professional, highly creative standards 4. Demonstrate the ability to initiate and manage their own learning, evaluate their own progress, exercise reflective and critical self-analysis.

Please ensure that you include your student registration number and the module code to the footer of your assessment when this is submitted. Assessment Breakdown Option 1: 50% DEO972, 50% DE0974 = 100% Option 2: 100% as described in the module descriptor How the work will be assessed Your work will be assessed against the following Learning Outcomes: 1. Apply comprehensive analytical research to complex design issues and topics leading to holistic design-related outputs or solutions. 2. Demonstrate independent creative thinking and judgement in the pursuit of solutions to complex design problems and issues. 3. Analytically apply design skills and techniques to produce design solutions to professional and highly creative standards. 4. Reflect on, evaluate and respond to feedback in relation to own performance and identify personal strengths and needs and accept personal responsibility. Anonymous marking: This module is not subject to anonymous marking. Internal Moderation: A sample of student work for this module will be subject to internal moderation of grade and feedback. For Level 5,6 and 7 modules the sample will also be scrutinised by the programme External Examiner. Assessment Feedback Students will receive feedback in one to one and/or group tutorial sessions, and at interim and final presentations. Formative assessment will be provided through tutorials or formal presentations. Summative assessment will be carried out through presentations and/or submitted design artifacts. Feedback will be given within 20 working days of submission. Student feedback The Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences values student feedback. Please make sure you complete a Module Questionnaire for this module. This will be available via the elearning portal under the relevant module number/in hard copy OMR format.

Reference The required reading for this module is determined by the student through autonomous learning, with tutorial guidance and will be appropriate to the subject matter of the specific design project. Students are encouraged to investigate ‘contemporary’ resources and it is anticipated that reading will cover new knowledge development, conceptual, personal and technically based goals. Important Notes Please note that no excuses will be accepted for lost work. Backup. Spelling and grammar will be taken into account so proof read all your work (and get someone else to.). Design Documents must be properly referenced using the Harvard style. All flat work must be submitted in one piece, no bigger than an A2 portfolio. You must put all work submitted into some kind of container such as a portfolio. Any CDs, prototypes, mockups etc. should be included in such a way, as they do not become separated from flat work. All elements should be labelled clearly. Extensions: It is your responsibility to negotiate an extended deadline and to complete a Late Approved (LA) Submission Form, if appropriate. All requests for LA will be dealt with by the SADSS Office and must be requested at least 24 hours before the assignment submission date. If you are incapacitated you can request an LA via email or telephone. For serious circumstances it may be appropriate to submit a Personal Extenuating Circumstances (PEC) Form. You must be able to provide substantial, relevant, evidence (medical certificates etc) to attach to this form which can be collected, with guidance notes, from the Office. Please refer to your Programme Handbook for further information.
