Approach to learning and assessment

This qualification will focus on selection and application of colour, soft furnishings, materials and finishes. In addition training is offered in a range of drawing and presentation techniques (architectural and CAD) and their appropriate applications.

Your learning and assessments are designed to develop an understanding of the essential concepts that support design and decorating skills. These gradually become more complex with the focus on integrated learning and a workplace approach to communication and presentation of ideas to clients.

Underpinning knowledge of decoration and design concepts is developed throughout the program.

Smaller practical industry-based assignments gradually expand to embrace simulated Design Studio style project delivery (2nd semester) which echoes industry practice. This will prepare you for employment in the design and decoration field specifically for the domestic market place.

You will be encouraged to develop a solution-based approach to client briefs. As well, you will be trained in professional standards and consultative models.

Design theory is delivered to support the application of design principles and elements, with examples drawn from historical and contextualised references to ensure you acquire an extended repertoire of imagery, design motif, and reference.

Successful completion of this program requires you to demonstrate that you are competent in 17 units of competency. For learning and assessment purposes some of these units of competency have been grouped into clusters as listed below.

These units are graded in addition to competency based assessment

Cluster 1
BSBDES302A 2D Design Process
MSFID4003 Prepare a material board

Cluster 2
MSFID4001 Apply colour for interior
MSFID4008 Assess & recommend lighting

Cluster 3
MSFID4007 Construction techniques 1
MSFID4011 Work, health & safety
MSFID4006 Material & finishes

Cluster 4

CUFDIG304A Digital graphic techniques
BSBWOR204A Business Technology

Cluster 5

BSBDES303A Spatial design
MSFID4004 Research & recommend furniture
MSFKB4002 Kitchen designs

Approaches to learning include project based learning, site visits, industry-based projects, lectures, tutorials, guest speakers and online delivery. Students are assessed in a variety of ways including:

  • final folio presentations
  • research based projects
  • minor and major projects
  • visual diaries
  • oral and visual presentations

The supervised hours in this program are: 442

You will also need to work independently, this includes:
-    Independent study activities such as research, reading, practical and/or theoretical practice tests or assessments. 
-    Work placements which are not directly linked to an assessment of course competencies.

 

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like
to find out more.

Work integrated learning

RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.

If you are working, particularly in a job which is related to your studies you will also be learning while at work and may have the opportunity to be assessed in your workplace for some or all of your courses. Feedback from work supervisors and others in the workplace can be used as evidence for assessment of competence, and an RMIT University assessor can visit your workplace to observe and assess your work practice and competence.

Guest speakers from industry inform and educate on specific topics throughout the program. Site visits to showrooms, suppliers and manufacturers provide opportunities to research and learn in industry.

The designated WIL (Work Integrated Learning) course is:

GRAP5294C Explore and apply the creative design process to 2D forms (BSBDES302A).

In this course students are given a brief which has been developed by practitioners from industry. Students prepare a design response to the brief. Student work is then reviewed by the industry practitioners and students are provided with feedback.
