The site visit will allow the students to be part of nature to observe and collect information. Students will have to represent their findings and information as an Infographic Poster and their experience through a simple documentary video. This project will not just benefit the students in this class, but it will spark awareness and inspiration to others around the world once they share it on YouTube and on their online TGC Portfolio. Objectives of Project The objectives of this project; 1. To create awareness of the elements of the natural and built environment 2. To expose the elements of the natural and built environment in their basic unit, form and function
  • 2. 2 Learning Outcomes of this Project On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to demonstrate the following: 1. To recognise and identify the different elements of the natural and built environment 2. To describe the different characteristics of the natural and built environment by exploring the basic elements such as natural topography, landscape, space, building and infrastructure. Tasks - Methodology The main tasks of this project are to explore, experience, and appreciate the natural habitat during their site visit. Students will then have to transfer these experiences and information collected at the site on to an Infographic Poster and a 5-10 minute documentary video. Students will need to use their creative thinking skills knowledge to create an original and interactive Infographic Poster and the documentary video. The Infographic Poster will concentrate on the habitat and ecosystem. The Documentary Video should focus on the students experience at site, their brief understanding of the habitat and ecosystem and to include an awareness message. Site Visit – Experiencing Nature It is compulsory for the students to attend a site visit with their group members as organised by the lecturers. The information of this site visit will be on TIMES. In groups students are required to choose an area that they would like to explore and to document. The site should be about 10mx10m. At the site students are required to explore and collect the following information: 1. Record the things that excite your senses; a. See (what do you see at different times, scales of things, near far etc) b. Smell (what kind of smell at different time and places, of things) c. Hear (what kind of sounds do you hear) d.

The Documentary Video The idea of the documentary video is for the students to share their experiences with nature.The aim of the video is to inspire others and eventually as an awareness video to all. It is a reflection of what the student have learnt from the site visit and the project. The final video should not exceed 10 minutes and not less than 5 minutes. Tips and detail requirements for the video will be on TIMES. We accept slideshows or video. This means that the final outcome does not have to be all motion pictures. It can be narrated or with just subtitles. The documentary video should have the following; a. The introduction about the site and project. b. The students experience (The things that excite their senses) etc. c. Explanation about the relationship of the eco system at the selected site. d. A conclusion with and awareness or/with inspiring message. This is a group work. Individually students shall record their individual task in preparing this video and this will be part of their 15% marks. The Habitat Info Graphic Poster All the information collected at site will need to be presented as an Infographic Poster. Through tutorial session and group discussion students will decide the theme or topic or subject that they would like to concentrate on. They will also need to do further investigation and refer to books and online information regarding the information that they have collected from the site. Students will transfer or translate the collected information on to an Infographic Poster.
