INSTG069 - Publishing Project

This module will allow students to pursue real-time publishing projects. The module runs across both terms 1 and 2 to allow space for these projects to develop. The projects will allow students to explore product development and project management skills.

Students will have access to core teaching staff and to specialist guest speakers throughout the module to ensure they gain the skills and and production knowledge to see a project through from beginning to end. The nature of these projects will vary from year to year but they will give students the opportunity to work alongside professionals to develop creative and business skills.

At the end of this module, students will be able to:

i) demonstrate a systematic critical understanding of the technology required to produce and distribute a variety of publishing products and services with different formats and on different platforms

ii) demonstrate the systematic and comprehensive knowledge required to formulate professionally appropriate instruction briefs, budgets and schedules related to the performance of design, production and distribution tasks in a publishing context

iv) show a comprehensive understanding of the project management methods employed to plan and control aspects of the design, production and function in a publishing organisation

Sessions, which will be held in a computer room, are flexible to allow groups to work together.
