Course Description

In the Live Production industry, much of the work is carried out in teams. In this course you will develop the skills and knowledge required to promote teamwork amongst the people you work with or supervise. It involves developing team plans to meet expected outcomes, leading the work team, and proactively working with the management of the organisation.

This unit is delivered and assessed with CUAVSS401 Operate complex vision systems and BSBCRT402A Collaborate in a creative process.

Overview of Assessment

 Assessment for this course will involve demonstration of practical tasks and testing of underpinning theory knowledge.


Assessment Tasks

This unit is assessed with Operate Complex Vision Systems and BSBWHS404A Contribute to WHS hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control. It is also assessed with BSBCRT402A Collaborate in a creative process in Semester 2.To demonstrate competency in this course you will need to complete the following assessment to a satisfactory standard.

You will receive feedback on all assessment and once you have demonstrated competency, you will receive a grade for Assessment Tasks 3 and 5 which will determine your final result for each of the four units (refer to MyRMIT for the grading rubric).

Assessment Task 1:Operating Complex Vision System
3 x Blackboard tests on Operating Complex Vision Systems

Topics include;
• Routine maintenance procedures for vision systems that need to be undertaken for both temporary and permanent installations
• The purpose and function of media servers and control networks in relation to vision systems
• The issues and challenges that typically arise when setting up and operating complex vision systems, along with solutions to address them

These 3 tests will be completed at home:

Test1: between Classes 7 and 8, with feedback in Class 8
Test 2: between Classes 15 and 16, with feedback in Class 16
Test 3: between Classes 20 and 21, with feedback in Class 21

Assessment Task 2: Work Health and Safety Test
Blackboard test to assess your current knowledge of WHS legislation, understanding of risk and evaluation of a range of risk controls in given scenarios.

This assessment will be completed at home between in classes 8 and 9, with verbal feedback in classes 9.

Assessment Task 3: Production A (This assessment will be graded)
For this assessment you will collaborate in teams to set up, operate and pack down vision systems that feature multiple sources and display devices for an in class production. You will be working in teams but assessed individually through direct observation and through oral questioning during and after the assessment.

This assessment will occur in class 18, 19 and 20 with verbal feedback given in class 26.

Assessment Task 4: Teamwork Reflection
Review the Team Plan of the first Production (including details of how the plan was developed,how it was monitored and how successful this was for the team performance) and review the feedback provided to you via your team members, as well as your own performance. This review will be compeleted using a set of questions in Blackboard.

This assessment is due in Week 22

Assessment Task 5: Production B (This assessment will be graded)
For this assessment you will collaborate in teams to set up, operate and pack down vision systems that feature multiple sources and display devices for an in class production. You will be working in teams but assessed individually through direct observation and through oral questioning during and after the assessment.

This assessment will occur in class 23, 24 and 25, with verbal feedback given in class 26.

Assessment Task 6: Collaboration - Reflection and Review
Review the collaborative process in the second Production; concepts of trust and ethical behaviours; creative endeavours; challenges; benefits; and key learning for the future from working on the Vision Systems completed in class via a set of questions in Blackboard.

Graded assessment in this course uses the following grades

Attendance

The major learning experience involves studio based exercises, demonstration and production. It is strongly advised that students attend all sessions in order to engage in the required learning activities, ensuring the maximum opportunity to gain the competency. Non-attendance may seriously jeopardise the chances of success in a course. Clearly, non-attendance at an assessment will result in failure of that assessment. Where visa conditions apply, attendance is compulsory.

Cover Sheet for Submissions

You must complete a submission cover sheet for every piece of submitted work. This signed sheet acknowledges that you are aware of the plagiarism implications.

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning (web link)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process through which people can gain entry to, or credit in, recognised courses based on competencies gained. The competencies may have been gained through experience in the workplace, in voluntary work, in social or domestic activities or through informal or formal training or other life experiences. Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) applies if a student has previously successfully completed the requirements of a unit of competency or module and is now required to be reassessed to ensure that the competency has been maintained.

Assessment and Feedback (web link)

You will receive verbal feedback during scheduled class times, and written feedback from teachers on your work . Where appropriate, this feedback will also include suggestions on how you can proceed to the next stage of developing your projects.

Student Progress (unresolved) (web link)

Monitoring academic progress is an important enabling and proactive strategy to assist you to achieve your learning potential.

Special consideration for Late Submission (unresolved) (web link)

All assessment tasks are required to be completed to a satisfactory level. If you are unable to complete any piece of assessment by the due date, you will need to apply for an extension. You can apply in writing for up to a week’s extension from your course teacher. If you need a longer extension, you wil need to apply for special consideration.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism (unresolved) (web link)

RMIT University has a strict policy on plagiarism and academic integrity. Please refer to the website for more information on this policy go to Academic Integrity
