Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Each clinic deepens and strengthens the students' personal approach, visual thinking and technical skills building up students' personal knowledge on certain areas of photographic techniques, e.g. analogue processes and lab work, image post-production, studio, lightning, video, editing and digital printing.

1-3 cliniques will be offered per year and the topics arise from current technical development and changes in the equipment. Students may choose  clinics based on their personal demands.

On a successful completion of each clinic, students

  • have built up their previous knowledge of particular techniques, tools and materials
  • are able to apply new techniques to their work
  • are capable of applying learned new skills and practices to their own personal work
  • can specify the separate sectors that are needed for the pursued outcome
  • can explain and reason the varied steps of making that lead to particular results
  • are able to work on one's own initiative
  • hold knowledge where and how to find additional information when necessary

The learning outcomes vary and are related to each workshop and they will be described in detail in the course description of each study event.

Assessment Methods and Criteria
  • Valid 01.08.2020-31.07.2022:

    Typical ways of working are lectures, demonstrations, hands-on individual and group work and practice. Methods vary from clinic to clinic.

     

  • Applies in this implementation:

    Kurssin arviointi perustuu läsnäoloon (80%) sekä kurssin aikana määrättyjen kotitehtävien (2kpl) suorittamiseen.

    Course evaluation is based on the attendance (80%) and completing the homewrks (2pcs) during the course.

Workload
  • Valid 01.08.2020-31.07.2022:

    See details of the contact hours and other ways of working from the course description of each clinic.

  • Applies in this implementation:

    Kurssi on yhden opintopisteen laajuinen eli työmääräksi on arvioitu 27 tuntia. Lähiopetusta kurssilla on 18 tuntia. Opiskelijoiden oletetaan työskentelevän itsenäisesti pimiössä kurssitöitä suorittaessaan 9 tuntia lähiopetuksen lisäksi.

    The size of the course is 1 study credit which means 27 work hours. The amount of the contact teaching on the course is 18 hours. The students are expected to work individually for 9 hours to complete the course works.

DETAILS

Study Material
  • Valid 01.08.2020-31.07.2022:

    Teacher will provide in the beginning of the course.

  • Applies in this implementation:

    Opiskelijoiden tulee kuvata ja kehityttää filmit itsenäisesti ennen kurssia, tai ottaa kurssille mukaan aiemmin kuvattuja mustavalkofilmejä. Kurssin aikana keskitytään vedostuksen opetteluun. Koska kurssi on klinikkamuotoinen, opiskelijoiden toivotaan tuovan käyttöönsä omat materiaalit, ukuunottamatta vedostuskemioita, jotka ovat yhteiskäytössä ja tulevat kurssin puolesta. Meillä on käytössä kaksi pimiötä: yksi Väreessä ja toinen Kandikeskuksessa, osoitteessa Otakaari 1. Laboratoriovastaavana toimii Anne Kinnunen, johon voi myös ottaa yhteyttä pimiöön liittyvissä kysymyksissä. https://people.aalto.fi/anne.kinnunen


    The students are expected to photograph and develop, or get developed the black and white films beforehand. They can also bring along older black and white films. The course is intended to be a clinic focusing on silver gelatine printing. As the course is a clinic, it is also expected that the students have their own papers. The course provides all of the chemicals and some demo papers to be used. We have two darkrooms in use during the course: one at Väre and one at Otakaari 1. Our laboratory workshop master is Anne Kinnunen, who also answers the questions concerning the darkroom work. https://people.aalto.fi/anne.kinnunen

    The order of priority for admitting students to courses at Aalto ARTS 1.1.2018 onwards (approved by The Committee of Arts, Design and Architecture on 10.10.2017)

    The order of priority is as follows:

    1. students for whom the course is compulsory for their major/programme and who have scheduled it for the current academic year in their personal study plan (HOPS);
    2. exchange students for whom the course is a part of his/her officially approved learning agreement and scheduled to be taken during the current semester;
    3. students for whom the course is compulsory for their major/programme and who have not completed it yet;
    4. students, for whom the course is part of his/her major s or programme s alternative studies and has been scheduled in the student's PSP (HOPS) for the current academic year
    5. students, for whom the course is part of his/her major s or programme s alternative studies and who have not completed the requisite number of credits for alternative studies yet;
    6. students for whom the course is compulsory for their minor;
    7. students, for whom the course is part of his/her minor subject s alternative studies and who have not completed the requisite number of credits for alternative studies yet;
    8. students who have applied for the course through a student mobility scheme (internal mobility within Aalto University, flexible study right (JOO) studies etc.);
    9. other students.

     

    Courses that are intended to be multidisciplinary (e.g. UWAS courses) may apply an order of priority based on the learning outcomes of the course, while bearing in mind the university obligation of enabling students to complete their degrees within the normative duration of study set for the degree. The order of priority does not apply to courses organised by the Centre for General Studies or doctoral courses.

    This decision on the order of priority does not influence the right of the teacher to define prerequisites for the course.
