Lecture based theoretical urban design module, providing students with an advanced introduction to the history and theory of urban form leading up to the contemporary paradigms in urbanism, with a specific emphasis on urban morphology and the fields of knowledge pertinent to the students design investigation and current project work in the studios. Selected exemplary design approaches will be examined through lectures, readings, and seminars including historical paradigmatic change in urban form and design. This course is organized as an advanced seminar facilitating information exchange and discussions. It will focus on the thought, principles and places that have shaped the history, theory and practice of urban design and physical planning. Examples will illustrate how urban form is shaped by both strong blueprint planning/design interventions and incremental historicaal and morphological evolutions. The course will highlight fundamentals of shaping and composing cities and the main elements of urbanism - the neighborhood, the block, the square, the street and the building. The course also reviews the contemporary ideals in urban planning and design - current paradigms in urbanism.

The Studio is a part of three studio project series and it is the International Placemaking Studio, preceded by the Nordic Studio - Urban Public Places and Advanced Urban Space Studio. The aim for all three studios is to foresee urban planning and design issues and problems that will be coming into the public focus in the near future. After completing this international studio the students will be able to fully grasp and understand the dynamic conditions acting on modern cities, specifically issues of regional urbanization, urbanistic genericism and informal globalization. Creating consciousness through concrete examples that place the social reality of a site at the forefront of political discussion will be a nunaced element that the students will acquire during the course of their work with the project. Students will be able to adopt a placemaking approach that is a humanistic process defined by reality. The studio adopts concrete strategies for physical appropriation and production through the students work which will envision a platform for public performance to serve as a catalyst for social reform. Finally the studio offers students a completely different approach to intervention in the public realm, one of kinetic accupuncture method based on inclusivity and transformative placemaking strategies - making a public space into a living place.

An intensive design studio introducing students to a glocal issues focusing on complex elements of the public realm with attention to the urban fabric as a generator of social life in public places; the program modules (2 and 3) will provide the basis for the content that is needed to accomplish this studio. Students work in small groups/gilds to produce an urban design project with a specific proposal to a selected urban issue addressing a complex reality, social, economic, environmental, or cultural. The context and the project task is “glocal”, i.e. Swedish or -and, European based but at the same time addressing similar problems and challenges globally. The project advances the idea of learning from history of urban form and creating contemporary urbanism that is of "cityism" - city like qualities and character, dynamic and kinetic, of a livable community feel and democratically inclusive place, and of high urbanity where the public realm, squares, streets, quarters and public life play a pivotal role in shaping and composing the spatial form.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Skills. Art & Design programme (CRS) offers a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the range of methods, strategies and debates which can apply to art and design research. Read more

Course overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Skills: Art & Design programme (CRS) offers a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the range of methods, strategies and debates which can apply to art and design research. It is built around the four elements of (1) methods, (2) critical thinking, (3) ethics, and (4) project design. The programme is ideal for artists and designers who want to develop a research proposal based on their practice.

See the website http://cardiff-school-of-art-and-design.org/crs/

In addition those students for whom English is not their first language are required to have IELTS or have achieved a specified equivalent qualification standard. All such applicants are required to have a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 based upon specific minimum sub-test scores of: Reading: 6.0; Writing: 6.0, Speaking: 6.0, Listening: 6.5. We also recognise the value of prior learning and experience within related fields. This is based upon either demonstrable evidence of assessed learning outcomes with equivalence, or equivalent experience where students “have learned in similarly ambitious ways”. Such claims must be approved at the time of enrolment.

Course content

As an artist or a designer, there are many reasons for wanting to conduct research. You might have a question or interest relating to art and design practice or theory which you want to explore, and it is something which you are passionate about. Or you want to develop your practice in relation to a particular interest or question, with the result that you not only make a contribution to the field but also find your practice transformed by the discussion that accompanies research. Or you simply want to become familiar with and have experience of a range of research methods and critical thinking skills.

CRS covers the ‘who, what, why and how’ of research in art and design. It works with your research interest and shows how it can be developed into a formal research degree proposal. You will become familiar with a range of methods, be guided in conducting a critical visual and literature review, have relevant ethical considerations identified and explored, and be shown how to combine these elements in a formal research degree proposal.

CRS is included as part of Cardiff School of Art and Design’s MA (Art & Design), MPhil and PhD programmes. It can also be taken as a stand-alone programme in preparation for writing a research application. It is taught over two intensive weekends in October and November in Cardiff, with one-to-one tutorials available from October to January. The fee for the stand-alone programme is one third of the fee for one year on a full-time research degree programme.

This program will help you to respond to changing educational environments and develop, implement and evaluate innovative, evidence-based solutions. Read more

Overview

This program will help you to respond to changing educational environments and develop, implement and evaluate innovative, evidence-based solutions. The core studies cover educational research, the nature of educational organisations, the process of learning and teaching, and information and communication technologies (ICT) in education, and you will then be able to develop an in-depth understanding of at least one specialist area: Advanced Practices in Learning and Teaching, ICT in Education, and Higher Education.

You will have the opportunity develop your skills in three key abilities: to access the most up to date sources of research and scholarship in Education, to analyse and synthesise this sometimes highly technical literature, and to effectively communicate the results to both academic and non-academic audiences. Subjects are designed to refine and enhance your knowledge and skills by applying them to authentic problems, tasks, and scenarios.
