Continuous Assessment: 100%
Students go through the process during which new techniques are introduced and engage with new areas of technical knowledge and experience resulting in knowledge acquisition.
Conceptual understanding, the process whereby a student engages in critical analysis of visual concepts and production practices, testing their creative abilities and resulting in critical reflection.
Students are supposed to conduct several practical lighting exercises through which a student acquires technical experience, skills and the opportunity for creative expression and visualization of concepts to create a portfolio.
Resulting in critical reflection: the process through which a student reflects on new and understandings, and on their own learning experiences and performance, and acquires new awareness and understandings.
Based on the objectives of the course, the use of 100% continuous assessment will be most appropriate to determine the learning outcomes.
Students will be assessed by:
30%: Knowledge acquisition: designed to aid students demonstrate, in a practical way, findings and theories discussed in class. Assignments may include illustrating a research question that is of general interest, proposing a research design that addresses this question, writing a review on a specific topic, and generating a project that could explain the possible findings.
20%: Presentation to the class of the research papers or projects will be conducted by each student. Assessment criteria will include clear and succinct articulation of the of the research issue, the background to the research issue, the objective of the research effort, and the major findings, controversies, and unsolved problems.
50%: Portfolio may contain written material such as objective descriptions, constructive evaluations together with visual material, video and photographic works that demonstrate the ability of the student to appropriately research and execute the topic.
