Aims and objectives
This programme is tailored for working designers and art/design educators, engaging in-service professionals in developing new practices in a design driven society. It aims to refine practitioners’ conceptual skills and practical knowledge in relevant disciplines, and facilitate the development of critical perspectives on the issues of design, culture and education in local contexts. The programme also engages educators and design practitioners in teamwork and developing new learning materials and content for our knowledge-based society.
This programme's main focus is on the provision of advanced art and design training at the practical and theoretical levels that are suitable to the local culture and its educational context. The programme offers opportunities in academic research and school-based educational development, as well as art and design experimentation in the workplace. Classes are on weekday evenings and/or weekends.
