1. Identifying your specialist design issue/question to research

This document will be used as the basis for feedback in tutorials and group sessions and is also an indicator used for student engagement at final assessment. You should make a copy and upload to your CCS folder on Teams.

Highlight in the first two columns your choice and in the third column type in your ideas for the specialist design issue/question you wish to explore. 

If you are unsure, identify in a couple of options, but be aware these will need to be narrowed down to one specialism by Week 7. 

See examples posted on BB of CCS Design Reports from previous years.

We are looking for Specialist design issues/questions that explore the context of :

If you identify a specialist area of design/illustration practice not included in the list above, that’s totally fine, just check it with a CCS tutor to make sure you are on the right track.
