Performances/Events Students regularly have opportunities to take part in performances/events, through which we can see growth and application of skills and knowledge. Regular Tutorials We hold formal, and informal, tutorials throughout the degree. Each student can discuss their work with the module tutor or Programme Manager during tutorials. We look at practical development, conceptual growth and future intentions. Presentations Presentations normally take place at the end of a module, exhibition or performance, in order to measure a student’s performance against assessment criteria. Process Workbooks At level 4 & 5, students will document their process and practical work in a workbook which demonstrates their learning and individual pathway. At level 6, students write about and reflect on their practice and process in short written tasks and practical presentations. During this course, students may be required to explore texts containing themes and issues that might be perceived as challenging.
