Wimbledon Print and Time Bases Media Online Research Journal

I am now using this blog as my online research journal for the extent of my study abroad course during the fall semester of 2011.  September-December



Development of my Research Journal:

Throughout your Stage 2 experience of the course you will continue to develop your  Research Journal 

  • Primary Research (visiting galleries) & press releases on artists and exhibitions; 
  • Analogue drawing and visualisation (sketchbooks / journals / diary)
  • General Research: Gallery information & website lists; 
  • A specific edited section of the Journal which contains reference material about artists of particular relevance to your practice (as it emerges)
  • PPD Folder: Placement Project (Part 1: Unit 6 and Part 2: Unit 7) 
  • Your own critical evaluations and notes based on lectures and seminars.
  • Your own completed self-evaluation forms 

If it is more suitable for your working methods, in stage 2 you can opt to make your Research Journal as an online, electronic document.

The ideal format for this is as a BLOG or WEBSITE that you design and manage yourself. This must have a well organised structure that is clear for your tutors to understand and contains all the key academic features of the ‘paper based’ Research Journal including:


  • Bibliography – updated list of shows, artists, articles, books, websites, artworks, relevant to your practise
  • Notes, commentaries, thoughts etc on shows, artists, articles, books, websites, artworks, relevant to your practise
  • Notes on you. Include your learning agreements and critical reflections (download these forms from BB and complete them electronically but also print them out and hand in at assessment)
  • Your Critical Practise course writing
  • Your artist’s statements.
  • Your own writing
