Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to explore and apply the design process in a 3-dimensional (3D) way in response to a brief. This is a core unit in design fundamentals and as such underpins many other specialisation units.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

BSBDES303A Explore and apply the creative design process to 3D forms

Element:

1. Source information on 3-dimensional design

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Identify and access relevant sources of information on 3-dimensional design

Full year students will work in a 3D workshop in the city with access to sanding, routing and modeling materials and equipment.

Accelerated students will work in the studios at Brunswick.


Overview of Assessment

3 projects


Students will be tutored with a verbal and/or written evaluation of their progress, within class time.
A final assessment of Competency Achieved or Not Yet Competent will be given at the end of the course when students will submit all completed work.
To be deemed competent students must satisfactorily complete all Learning Elements and related Performance Criteria.
Grading will be offered in addition to, and after, competency based assessment.
