By doing so, you will inform your own critical understanding of the importance of design in a global context. The module is structured around you actively engaging as a self-reflective designer to develop an emergent understanding of your own creative practice within global contexts. All project work you will be engaged in will be student-centred enquiry involving both primary and secondary research activities. Your visiting Northumbria University tutor will facilitate a creative and intellectual process with emphasis on student-focused learning through seminars, where you will disseminate your own research to your peers, and engage critically with peers to inform and consolidate your creative outputs and written report.

Advanced Creative Practice (30 Credits)

GD6013 develops your specialist design skills towards advancing your own creative practice as a globally focused designer. It is structured around you using your personal global perspective that you developed in DE1213 to create a self-defined design project. By doing this you will learn the importance of your critical thinking as a designer to understand the socio-cultural context of a design problem, as well as the target audience that your final design outcomes must benefit. By actively engaging in research-through-design in your design project, you will reveal any specific considerations that you will need to address in your design project. This research will enrich the design solutions you develop for your design problem. It will involve secondary research activities from academic and popular literature sources to support your design decisions. This may lead you to enter into a primary research and a co-design relationship with your target audience, to develop effective design solutions for them. You will proactively follow a structured design process from writing your own design brief, through ideation, development and final design phases. At each of these points a milestone mini-deadline will be set, which will help you learn how to manage your time. You will also use a dedicated social media platform(s) as a tool for self-reflective practice, and to ethically network with professional designers and future employers globally. By disseminating each step of your design process for peer feedback you learn to improve your creative practice.
