Sancha class: About Research – TYPE TOUR POSTER

I have attach my notes from my lesson about research how important it’s to understand and expand our knowledge, I also found out the main keys for research defined as investigation related to our work where you can find information as influences and exploration of each work.

Research can also be called as creative to find the specific source that can be found by anywhere like books, internet, news papers, museums, exhibitions, directly to the person etc.

There is also three main research sources into Primary and Secondary sources which means Primary Sources are those that are direct, first hand and immediate, Secondary Sources are the repetition of the primary ones in other media.

In class I learn a new skill whether some of us students find it hard to make notes so we tried the Edward de Bono “P.M.I.” technique that stands for Plus, Minus and Interesting which is a method to think about clearly about our work and a way to help us to evaluate it.

On my notes I have a quick sketch from an exercise we did at class looking through many posters and choose one to get the knowledge by practising with “P.M.I” I think it did help to analyse and think about how can be inspired related to your work and why you don’t think it’s suitable for your work.

How much do you notice it? How much does it inform or inspire you?
