Assessment method

Assessment is by portfolio, group practical, presentation and (where appropriate) a supporting piece of work relevant to the module. All assessments are based around you evidencing your skills and experience, reflecting upon how you are developing both professionally and personally and are a useful tool for you to set goals and targets. You will also be expected to research methods and practices that are not covered in the module, and to relate and compare these to your learning. Other work relevant to the module might include a stage design and layout, a festival event plan or perhaps a lighting design and visualisation.
