  • 1.  Introduction to Typography 1 VDIS10020: Hello How to study for this unit
  • 2.  My usual teaching material is via this kind of PDF file, which may include links to other web sites, activities, set readings, references and book lists. There will also be Tasks for assessment and dates for completion. Hyperlinks will be shown by an underline and colour purple. Activities can be personal reflections or group discussions on Virtu chat pages. Set readings are a mandatory part of the learning program, you should ensure that You are encouraged to keep a personal you follow this work. (These may be Learning Journal – a place for you to different to the optional hyperlinks that record your progress and keep track of the dot the text.) program as we go through – a notebook/ diary of sorts that might include sketches, References relate to the academic content ideas, quotations, and so on... for your in these online talks, usually shown in personal use only, but will help you reflect detail in the book lists. on the learning program.
  • 3.  The typeface and/or background may change from time to time, but I’ll generally indicate my particular emphasis with yellow highlight. All ‘lectures’ are a starting point for your study, you are expected to make notes and be curious to investigate further – lectures are the personal overview of each lecturer and cannot cover every aspect of a topic – they are merely beginnings from which you expand your own sense of the field. Some of my book references might seem dated but these are classic texts on typography, you need to know about stuff. Feel free to discuss issues with me and other students and make full use of the facilities on Virtu. Online study has many advantages over the former off-campus study programs, interaction is so much easier. These slides are intended to be read on screen, so that I might also include a file which should be a handy print out file for any summary, references and/or book lists. Bon voyage!
