[ I know that two weeks is a lot of time to finish up a post like this which should’ve been done earlier, but understand that I’ve been working at my own pace and also facing several personal issues – not to mention, my own mental health hasn’t been that good as of late. It’s interfered with a lot of my writing, not just college.
I’ve cleaned up a lot of my notes and got most of this post done. I just need to give it a nice sparkly finish and it’ll be done, to which I can then do all my research in my free time and get that down into an academic format.
This is the start, where I plan to look and my ‘battle plan’.
The next post will be all my research, mostly condensed.
The final post will be the essay itself and condensing all that research. ]
In these two weeks we were introduced to Unit 12.
Unit 12 is the preliminary unit to Unit 13, which is the Final Major Project for this year. The learning objectives of Unit 12 are to research and critically examine the influence of historical and contemporary contexts on their own practice. It is an academic compilation of research, defined as ‘an opportunity for students to take greater control of their own learning by independently researching and presenting an investigation into an area of personal interest within creative media production and technology’.
It is intended to influence and inform direction and decision making for the final project’s proposal and execution. To that end, I will be going over initial writing advice I have sought out and my aims for the research. Who will I study? What mediums will I examine? How will I go about this?
