This unit was previously known as DIG372 Digital Portfolio Development.

In this unit, student will develop a professional portfolio as the culmination of their undergraduate study. This portfolio will collate students' best project work into a professionally presented portfolio and online presence in preparation for a final exhibition presentation to industry. The portfolio will highlight an ability to implement a range of fully resolved and deliverable folio pieces, as well as function as a public showcase of work. By consolidating and synthesising the knowledge, skills and awareness garnered from previous semesters, students will present a portfolio using cross-disciplinary approaches that exhibit their potential in the discipline field.
