Learning outcomes The Multimedia Project II curricular unit proposes to contribute to the development of knowledge in the field of multimedia design, expanding the students' abilities for analysis, reflection and problematization of multimedia design and its action.
It is intended that students exercise and test the limits of design, experimenting with languages, approaches and issues always with the principle of design proposal in mind. By articulating and formatting the project, students will be able to develop critical thinking about multimedia design itself and its presence in society, thus contributing to the purposes of training at the Master's level.
a) Develop a project in multimedia design for critically questioning the subject and the conceptual, formal and language approaches of the discipline;
b) Be able to use the design process as a form of investigation;
c) Develop autonomy in choosing a work area and deepening it.
