PERF20039 - Applied Creative and Professional Practice

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit provides you with the opportunity to extend your specialised, discipline-specific or interdisciplinary creative and/or professional practice and project management skills and knowledge (developed and delivered in Creative and Professional Project 1 and Creative and Professional Project 2) through the applied implementation of that project. In strategically embedding the outcomes of your project in an industry context, you will extend your expertise. This may be through an advanced engagement with the creative or professional practice of your project or a greater integration of practice within industry (such as applying for grant funding, or securing publication, exhibition or other dissemination of the work). You will also consider, evaluate and appraise the outcomes of your creative and professional project within the context of the wider policy and funding landscape of your discipline and employment opportunities, appraising the project in industry terms.

Source: self-reflection; student feedback
Maintain the teaching support for distance students provided through regular zoom sessions
Continue to informally schedule fortnightly zoom sessions to provide structured support for students without relying on only individual communication.
Action Taken
Source: student feedback
Consider shifting the due date for the first assessment task to provide more time.
Provide clarity in the assessment task information as to the reasoning for the due date, and also seek feedback from students in Term 2, 2018 about assessment 1.
Action Taken
Source: self-reflection; staff feedback
Some uncertainty with the assessment because of its self-directed nature.
Consider providing more specific requirements for the assessment tasks for clarity; however, it is important to not lose the individual and bespoke nature of the unit's project focus. Observe and consider throughout 2018.
