END OF MODULE EVALUATION:
What skills have you developed through this module and how effectively do you think you have applied them?
I feel I have learnt a lot throughout this module, particularly my knowledge within certain academic topics. I feel the set of lectures has given me a broad understanding and interest in certain areas of academic study that can be related to graphic design. The lectures have helped me to develop an understanding of theory and current issues. I feel my research skills within essay writing has improved, having to research thoroughly and use books as sources to quote and support the content of the essay. I also understood the concept of theory into practice a lot more this time around, having to design something in a way that displays, successfully, your findings or is theory based is an important skill to be able to apply. This year, I feel the outcome of my publication was a lot more relevant to the type of outcome required. Taking a concept, exploring it through different research methods and then applying these skills to individual case studies to prove the idea of the concept, all in a way that is relevant to its format and design style. Another skill I feel has massively improved is the development of concepts. At first I struggled to think of ways I could put my theory into practice but after relevant research and tutorials I felt my idea progressed massively from my essay which I used as a starting point.
