Details of Learning Activities

This course will be clustered with the course ARCH5213C Research & recommend furniture and GRAP 5295C 3D Design Process delivered using a blended approach in the following modes:

In Class activities will include:

  • Lectures
  • Peer teaching and class presentations
  •  Teacher directed group activities/projects
  • Analysis/critique of relevant reading material
  • Creative thinking techniques
  • Construction of models

Out of Class activities will include:

  • Online research
  • Independent project based work

Self Directed Learning
Some activities will include a self directed learning approach; self directed learning refers to organised
activities that students undertake independently, either as individuals or with other students that are
supervised by a teacher. This may include workplace research, library assignments, field trips and work
placements.
