Assessment for this module is continuous. It consists of three components: (a) quizzes (b) tutorial presentation/participation and (c) a term paper. There are two (2) quizzes and one (1) term paper.
The quiz is designed to get quick, yet informed responses from you to seeing visual images. It will require (a) familiarity with images discussed in class, (b) some factual knowledge and (c) capacities to engage in interpretation.
Each quiz is for 30 minutes and will be set in the lecture hall, at the end of a lecture. In each quiz there are two sections. In the first section, four (4) images from lecture topics will be projected individually: you are expected to identify each image, i.e. provide it with a title, the name of the artist who made it (if this is known) and suggest a date. You then are asked to briefly comment on the theme and the composition in each image. In the second section, two (2) images are projected as a pair; in which case, you are asked to offer a comparative analysis of the two, having identified them.
Note: quiz dates are published in schedule for lectures and quizzes on Page 2 of this handout. (Quiz 1 is on September 18 and Quiz 2 is on November 13.)
These are for students to develop capacities to forward, articulate and test their knowledge and points of view. Participation is important. Tutorials commence in Week 2, i.e. 21 & 22 August 2018 and are convened weekly. Each student is to make one oral presentation on a designated tutorial topic.
Tutorials are conducted by Sabapathy and Jade Zhang Yu. Students are required to (a) sign up for
tutorials with one of these two instructors and (b) make a presentation on a topic. There are 8 tutorials for this module; each is devoted to a topic. A student is required to make one presentation on any one of these topics. It is important that students in a tutorial group are prepared to discuss what is said in a presentation in relation to the topic. For details see tutorial brief.
