Aims and objectives

Develop an understanding of Practice-led Research as it applies to the development of a writing folio. In this unit, you will explore the approaches and methodologies of Practice-led Research and investigate the components of studio-based practice and research. The unit will deepen your understanding of the importance of reflective practice and reflexivity for writers involved in Practice-led Research. It will give you an understanding of how the planning process can assist the creation of, and problem solving for, the production of a major piece of writing. The development of a folio of work, including artefact and exegesis, begins in this unit and is continued in Folio B.
After successfully completing this unit, students will be able to:

1. Identify, evaluate, and critically reflect on a range of complex research tools such as rationales, literature reviews, and research methodologies related to critical and creative practice.
2. Demonstrate skills in applying complex research tools and research methodologies to a unique example of their own professional practice, creative practice, or scholarship.
3. Generate a research proposal that is exegetical in nature and that demonstrates a high level of reflexivity towards their creative practice, analytical mastery of related literature, and a critical awareness of new developments in the field.
