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
