FdA, HND, (Level 5 progression route)
With an Ba (Hons) in Contemporary Creative Practice: Moving Image you will develop your expertise for use in your current or a vibrant career in the media.
Your skills will also give you a broad knowledge of the editing and theoretical side of moving image for implementation in the content production side of many modern day businesses.
Teaching approaches can include for example theoretical structure, group work, practical workshops, seminars, tutor-led and self-managed study, research projects, and guest lectures. Each of these will be used on your modules so you get the chance to learn as effectively as possible.
We have carefully designed assessments in order to use the best methods available to assess the integrated approach to theory and practice that you’ll engage in within the content creation discipline. Your coursework, carried out in response to assignments, project briefs or self-initiated proposals, will be presented in forms appropriate to that in the workplace and will require you to work both individually and in teams in generating computing solutions to set problems. To back up your work you will also write reports and deliver presentations. Formative assessment is carried out in tutorial and practical sessions and feedback is usually provided to you orally.
Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally (through formative feedback) before you complete the formal assessments. Each module normally includes practice or 'formative' assessments for which you receive feedback from your tutor.
Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark but are essential for you to develop academically as a student. There is a formal or 'summative' assessment at the end of each module and the grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.
You will normally receive feedback on coursework assessments within 20 working days following the date of submission. The feedback you receive will help to focus you to achieve better grades on the next set of modules you study.
