ADM-HEA BULLETIN - week ending 25 June 2010
in this bulletin:
Winner of student essay competition 2010 announced
This year ADM-HEA invited art, design and media students to write an essay addressing the following question: "Learning to live sustainably – how can your subject area contribute?"
We asked for writing that would critically investigate the topic using relevant research materials; reflect their own experiences of art / design / media higher education and present a coherent argument related to their subject area.
Congratulations go to Elle Tweedy, a 3rd year Product Design student at the University of Sussex who submitted the winning essay this year.
