After successfully completing this unit, you will be able to:
1. Evaluate and critique a range of complex techniques and theoretical approaches for turning creative reflection into creative output.
2. Demonstrate a high level of creative and practical skill experimentation through the application of creative and critical approaches to documenting and managing creativity.
