During this workshop students will investigate how to be more skilful in cooperating with others and consider the nature of interdisciplinary research.  We will discuss group communication and conflict resolution and you will reflect upon ethical working practices, ownership and collusion.

 

15 February | Using Theory and Finding Your Critical Voice

During this session we will discuss what ‘voice’ may mean within the contexts of writing and studio practice. Students will consider how to locate and maintain a critical voice while discussing the thorny issue of original thinking.

This workshop will consider the nature of critical and reflective report writing. Practical examples will be used to highlight the forms and conventions of the critical report alongside current debates about style, language & tone.
