3. Course contents *

The conent of this cours is a dive into diverse communication techniques revealing results obtained in conservation-restoration and / or related (research) domains. The following facets will be discussed:

A) Presentation and communication (Kristel De Vis)

Within this module, you will learn to communicate about your object in various forms: an article, a presentation, e.o.. We are going to work deeper than in the first modules (BA1). In addition, the student learns to structure a text, to apply the necessary elements of that text and to relate all these elements to each other in a chronological and substantive way. Furthermore, you will learn how research and analysis results can be integrated into a report / article / presentation, etc. As a student, you become familiar with communicating research results relative to stakeholders and the peer group.

Finally, you will be able to compile your own CV and POP and learn how to draw up a SWOT analysis. This in the context of a possible (job) internship or job vacancies in the sector in prospect.

B) Visualization and documentation (Mie Robbe):

Within this section, the student learns various forms of visualization of an object by developing his / her manual skills. This can be a general form analysis (proportions, tone values, lines, etc.) or style study (in a museum) etc. with different techniques (graphite pencil, watercolor, black pole, ....

C) Visualization and documentation (Lot Doms):

Within this section, students learn practically to deal with acquired photographic images. During an introductory lecture regarding the technical qualities of the camera and documentary photography within the CR context, the imaging techniques are taught through Adobe Photoshop (document layout, image damage, etc.). This session is followed by lessons on in situ photography (repro, scan, ...) and 3D photography.
