Module Code: OUGD102 
Module Title: Design Process

1. What skills have you developed through this module and how effectively do you think you have applied them ?

Throughout this module I have learned a number of different skills and more efficient ways of working. By having a large amount of time to research,collect and organise information into a rage of categories, it gave me a chance to find and solve essentially the problem I was looking at. However I don't think I have used them effectively in my approach to design work. The collection 100 project caught me out with my biggest weakness, research and development, which unfortunately held me back for a long period of time.

2. What approaches to/methods of research have you developed and how have they informed your development process ?

By collecting primary and secondary research, quantitive and qualitative I was able to understand a thorough approach to data collection and how much I actually needed to do. Asking people first hand proved taxing, as I did not allow myself to push to an effective approach od dealing with the research.

3. What strengths can you identify in your work and how have/will you capitalise these ?

I think my one and only strength was keeping at what I was doing. Although I knew it was hard and found it difficult to pull through at times, I knew I would eventually come up with a final idea and appropriate approach to dealing with the brief. I feel this brief has still not been fulfilled to my potential and I aim to continue it through time.

4. What weaknesses can you identify in your work and how will you address these more fully ?

Development and research have to my biggest weakness and seem to create a mind block in most projects. I know this is something I need to majorly improve on and collection 100 has made me realise this fully. You can only learn from your mistakes and I now know not fall into this trap again.

5. Identify five things that you will do differently next time and what do you expect to gain from doing these ?

- Research! Research! Research!
- Develop ALL of my ideas.
- Use my time wisely, don't fall into bad habits.
- Pick a broader subject matter.
- Not to rush to finish work.

6. How would you grade yourself in the following areas:
- 5 = excellent 4 = very good 3 = good 2 = average 1 = poor
