Details of Learning Activities

Learning activities will take place in a CAD room using industry standard resources. You will complete exercises and industry relevant projects. You will also be required to undertake independent study  to complete assignments outside class time.

In class activities may include:
• Presentations and demonstration
• teacher directed group activities/projects with individual input from students 
• class exercises to practice and develop skills
• Analysis/critique of relevant material
• Student presentations with Teacher and Peer feedback and review
• Personal class time to discuss and develop own work for assessment/presentation 


Out of class activities may include:
• practical work on projects
• investigation and research
• preparing of work for presentations
• project work
• independent research
• online research
You are expected to manage your learning and undertake an appropriate amount of out-of-class independent study and research.

Overview of Assessment

Assessment methods must confirm consistency, or the potential for consistency, of performance over time and in a range of workplace relevant contexts.

Assessment should be by direct observation of work and questioning on underpinning knowledge.

Assessment may be conducted over time and in conjunction with assessment of other units of competency. 

Assessment may occur on the job or in a workplace simulated facility with relevant task requirements, work instructions and deadlines.

 


Assessment Tasks

To demonstrate competency in this course, you will need to complete the following pieces of assessment to a satisfactory standard. You will receive feedback on all assessment.
