Introduction to Design Pathways


In this module, learners will be introduced to various design pathways in order to develop an understanding of discipline specifics practices.  Learners will be introduced to basic materials and processes unique to each pathway, and will undertake visual, historical, contextual and technical research into the area of practice.  Learners will complete one studio project for each pathway, allowing them the opportunity to engage with various creative practices in order to make an informed decision regarding their area of specialisation.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate a basic engagement with the design pathway through following a structured design process, and document this is a process journal.

  2. Consider the potential of the specific design pathway in relation to their individual further learning

  3. Solve basic design problems through structured problem solving approaches

  4. Interpret a design brief through research, concept generation and implementation of design techniques and processes
