This unit focuses on the ideation, development cycles and delivery of innovative production in the context of design and creative industries.  Students are introduced to key innovation production management approaches, practices and theories, to further their understanding of how different design and creative disciplines relate to each other and evolve within particular historical, theoretical and philosophical contexts. In addition to being required to engage in critical analysis, students will work in groups to produce innovative projects of their own, and will utilise production equipment and facilities.
Students undertaking this unit will further benefit from working collaboratively within a diversely-skilled team in response to innovative project demands. Weekly group discussions will explore critical dialogues focussing on significant practical and theoretical issues and the assessment tasks will develop aural, visual and written analytical skills across a range of appropriate technologies and techniques.
