Details of Learning Activities

On your timetable, this competency, in conjunction with CUVDSP11A (Research and apply techniques for illustrative work) will be referred to as Illustration.
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to research and apply techniques for application to any type of illustrative work. Within this unit, illustrative work would generally be quite simple in nature. The focus of the unit is on a general, introductory knowledge of illustrative work and its practical application. This is a specialisation unit and refers to a specific design form. This work requires some guidance.
Activities could include:
• Still-life drawing
• Class discussion
• Research
• Material experimentation
• Illustration

Overview of Assessment

The assessment will be as follows:
- Research projects
- Practical projects (hand and computer generated)

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. A graded assessment will also occur for this course.

To be deemed competent students must demonstrate competence in all Learning Elements and related Performance Criteria.

This course is co-assessed with GRAP 5154 Develop a basic design concept, GRAP 5155 Print processing, MANU 5731 Electronic media output, GRAP 9426 Typography techniques, MANU 5732 Select & apply type, GRAP 9427 Illustration techniques, VART 5793 Techniques to produce digital images, VART 5791 Digital image manipulation.

Other Information

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.

Late submissions and single item extensions
In all courses marks are deducted for late submission unless Special Consideration or an Application for Extension is sought. If a student feels they may miss a deadline for a single item submission they may negotiate an extension with their teacher. They must negotiate the extension by the due date of submission. They must complete the Application for Extension form available for the Administration Office on level 3 B515. (This does not apply where there are a number of missed submissions due to general difficulties – see Special Consideration).

Cover Sheet for Submissions
All students must complete a submission cover sheet for ever piece of submitted work. This signed sheet acknowledges they are aware of the plagiarism implications noted below.

Plagiarism is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person as though it is your own. It is a form of cheating and is a very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the University. Plagiarised material can be drawn from, and presented in, written, graphic and visual form, including electronic data and oral presentation. Plagiarism occurs when the origin of the material used is not appropriately cited. Is also occurs through enabling plagiarism, which is the act of assisting or allowing another person to plagiarise or to copy your own work. Please make sure you consider this carefully in completing all your work and assessments in this course and if you are unsure about whether you might have plagiarised, seek help from your teacher.

Work not seen in progress
If a student hands in any work that the teacher has never seen in class or discussed with the student prior to the submission, the teacher can refuse to assess the work on the basis of authentication issues.
