This paper will develop a student’s understanding of and ability to gather visual information and use these resources as appropriate in the students’ individual areas of interest. Students enrolled in this paper have to undertake an independent video-based project as part of a research-led learning experience. The aim of the project is to allow students to apply the conceptual and methodological skills they have developed to a particular research question or issue. Projects will be designed in conjunction with the paper convenor. Students will be encouraged to incorporate conceptual and practical skills, and to research and produce an independent short film.
