Upon successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to understand of global design contexts through undertaking a research and design project that considers and interprets different global cultures; Select relevant visual research approaches and deploy them to explore a range of globally distributed cultural venues, collections and experiences; Synthesize your findings and derive from them personally relevant insights and inspiration from which to develop a range of design ideas that allow you to express something of yourself as a developing global designer.
The module will be delivered through the School of Design’s extended studio approach (X-Studio) that embraces physical studios as well as our virtual spaces and the wider world to create a flexible and rich environment that is responsive to our learners’ needs.
It will be delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, group work, and independent study. It will involve both physical and virtual tours of cultural venues. You will develop your understanding of the cultural contexts of design using a project-based, visual research-through-design enquiry. The module will begin with regular contact with your Northumbria tutor through a series of lectures and seminars, after which you will complete the coursework through independent study. In doing so you will manage your own time and take responsibility for completing the assignments on time to a level of quality and rigor appropriate to a Level 5 BA (Hons) student.
