Academic Tutorial 20 credits You take a weekly one hour tutorial with a member of academic staff in a group of students.
However, they are very closely related.
Sometimes this may be given to you as a question set by the teacher or the Examinations Board and is usually a paragraph of writing.
Below is an example of a design problem and brief. Remember, the presentation is important especially if you are taking the Graphic Products course. Above all the problem and brief must be easy to read and follow, clearly saying what the problem is and how you intend to solve it.
It has been noticed that the number of strangers walking down our street has increased lately and house holders are becoming concerned about the security of their houses. The police have advised people to make their houses look as if they are occupied when they go away for a holiday or even out for the evening.
This may deter a potential thief from breaking into either the house or garage. The Neighbourhood Watch scheme has also been introduced recently and this has helped people feel more secure. However, even though neighbours will keep an eye on your property if you decide to go out and leave the house empty, they cannot watch twenty four hours a day.
Often even the police ignore house alarms when they are activated because of the high number of false alarms. Police statistics clearly show that houses are much more likely to be broken into when they are empty.
Consequently, if the house looks occupied it is likely to be safe. The device will be mobile so that it can be moved from room to room, easy to set up and control and also cheap to make. It will be activated by anyone approaching the hose from the front or back.
It must deter even profession crooks from taking an interest in our house and even convince people in the street that the house is occupied. The brief and problem is mainly text writing that is printed in a clear style so that it can be read and understood easily.
The problem is a paragraph or more in length. It describes the problem you are aiming to solve. Do not say how you intend to solve the problem, only what the problem is. If you have been given a examination question as your design project, add more detail. The example opposite is based on the following examination question: The problem written opposite is a more detailed and imaginative way of writing the examination question.
A pedestrian crossing simulator has been selected by the pupil as the educational device. The first sentence should state the problem, adding more detail with the following sentences.
If the examination question does not name the product that has to be designed and made such as an educational device - you can mention an area that you are interested in.Our students are inspired to achieve their potential through embracing our values; To Care, To Learn, To Achieve.
Working in partnership we will ensure that every student leaves Bedford with a strong sense of community and ready to be the best that they can be. This resource gives you an example of a scheme of work for GCSE Geography ().
We have presented the ideas here in the same order as the specification content. This scheme of work is designed as a suggestion only and not as a prescriptive approach. The ‘design brief’ follows the ‘problem’ and states clearly how you intend to solve the design problem.
Below is an example of a design problem and brief. Remember, the presentation is important especially if you are taking the Graphic Products course. Extracts from this document Introduction. Abstract The aim of this investigation was to investigate Glanzer and Cunitz theory of the Primacy and Recency effect that the first few words and the last few words in a list of will tend to be remembered and recalled .
Okay, so I'm 6 weeks into my A2 course in Textiles and now I have to write my brief, how on earth do I write a design brief.. I know what I'd like to include about how I'm studying about vintage collections etc.
but how the hell do I start it/word it!? The firmly established, yet largely unexamined, position on classroom display is that there’s nothing quite so magical as a classroom plastered in beautiful display work and nothing half so bleak as a bare wall devoid of all humanity and joy.
