|Cross Media Production and Contemporary Art, advanced course, 30 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course the student should be able to:
- Present their own distinct media-based or artistic projects, demonstrating an advanced level of understanding of production process and expression.
- demonstrate a good understanding of contemporary interdisciplinary or cross media projects, their underlying concepts and the contexts they are presented in.
- Work in groups or individually with a major project for an extended period of time.
- Working with other artists/producers and/or with institutions related to media exposition (for instance, galleries or museums).
- use contemporary media´s communicative expressions, its concepts and how these can be applied in one's own or group projects
- use modern media technology.
|The course work can be done individually or in group, offering a wide scope for the individual student to develop creative, conceptual, technical, journalistic, and artistic skills. This project aims to help students to develop personal skills related to both media, artistic and non-artistic processes, which places high demands on their previous experience. The course is both experimental and practical. The students will develop and present an individual or joint project within clearly defined frameworks in dialogue with teachers. The project aims to inspire its audience and to reflect on the concepts of criticality, networking, cultural context, technology, form and content and should be presented in public at the end of the course. The student’s work is developed under the teacher’s supervision, but also independently; student’s initiative and own responsibility are rewarded. No formal literature is included in the course; a literature list will be tailor-made for the specific projects included in the course. Students are encouraged to find external sponsors, and to work towards the industry and local media to promote their projects. The course often includes an international aspect.|
|The course is designed to promote student-active approach. The student’s own experience and own creative work is incorporated in a project. The work in the course is conducted in project teams. This approach puts into practice interpersonal skills in different sets. Groups may be established by the teachers in a dialogue with the students. Students' work is supported by various forms of teacher-led activities: such as, but not limited to, tutoring, group discussions, lectures, individual text information and workshops. Learning activities include accounting and creation of knowledge content in a variety of digital, audio-visual and spatial creative techniques.|
|The examination emphasizes active participation in seminars, and includes production process as well as its outcome. Detailed information about the examination can be found in the course’s study guide.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
