This study unit consists of the second part of the CreaTe Graduation Project (GP I) and the second part of Reflection I (REF I). Both study units build upon their accompaning parts in the previous module Real World Perspective.|
GP II focuses on the executing of the CreaTe design process. This multi phase process allows the student to: 1) develop multiple concepts of the envisoned product or service and select the preferred concept with stakeholder involvement (Ideation phase), 2) specify the functional requirements of the preferred concept (Specification phase), 3) realize a working protoype of the envisioned product or service (Realization phase), and 4) evaluate the envisioned product or service with stakeholder involvement. GP II concludes with a thesis, and a public presentation about the results of performed research.
The aim of the second reflection course is to develop the student's first quartile reflection outline into a substantial reflection report that develops the ethical and philosophical issues raised by their Graduation Project using those conceptual tools introduced in the first part of the course, alongside any additional that the student may find for themselves or have recommended upon consultation with others including teachers, employing them similarly.
The graduation semester is the last semester of the Creative Technology program. It consists of two modules: Real World Perspective (M11) and We CreaTe Impact (M12). Both modules share the Graduation Project - an individually executed design project, with a context and goal preferably set by an external party - as a component. However, the size of this component is significantly different: 4 EC in the first module vs 13 EC in the second module.|
The We Create Impact module builds uppon the knowledge and experienced gained in the study unit Graduation Project I of the previous module Real World Perspective. This module aims to further improve the student's reflective skills (e.g. ethical, societal, environmental, economic) on the potential outcome of their work (e.g. Graduation Project) in a textual manner, and to design and evaluate an innovative product or service by means of the student's Graduation Project.
