Module Work
This module gives you the opportunity to explore and understand your own professional practice and propel or launch your professional career and work towards personal goals (LO1). Whilst engaged with the module, you will be introduced to entrepreneurial skills and encouraged to consider entrepreneurial practice and starting your own professional practice (LO2). You may wish to advance an ongoing project, develop professional design services, explore a new project or opportunity, or answer an external project call for example (LO3).

However, the main focus is to produce an online presence. This should present you as a professional and successfully promote and communicate your work and skillset to an external audience in the most appropriate format (LO4). For example, this could be a website, a blog or Instagram or a combination of these, and might include public facing portfolio content. In addition, you are encouraged to have a LinkedIn profile and an online Curriculum Vitae (CV). You will need to build up a critical understanding of your field and demonstrate how your professional practice sits within this; for example, understanding your competitors, established professionals, and your audience (LO1). Benchmarking good, online examples will be essential.
This should be accompanied by a recorded 3–5-minute Screen Capture Presentation.

You should clearly demonstrate autonomy, initiative, and the ability to independently explore new resources. You will need to be proactive in developing clear goals for your personal development and practice going forward to help you navigate and work strategically through the module (LO5). This might include preparing for a job, a proposal for a PhD, working as a freelance designer or advancing existing employment opportunities. Learning on the module will also be demonstrated through a written reflective report where you will critically analyse and appraise your own work, in the context of existing professional practice within the field.
Your submission is expected to represent 200 hours of independent study.
