Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

On your timetable, this competency, in conjunction with VPAU052 (Produce and create graphics in response to a brief) will be referred to as Reprographics.
This unit requires the individual to prepare an output device for outputting images.
Devices may include but are not limited to plate setters, image setters and commercial digital printers. The final output will meet the job specifications and be free from errors.On your timetable, this competency, in conjunction with ICPPP252A (Output Images) will be referred to as Reprographics.
Graphic designers or graphic artists plan, analyse, and create visual solutions to communication problems. They decide the most effective way of getting a message across in print, electronic, and film media using a variety of methods. Graphic designers develop the overall layout and production design of magazines, newspapers, journals, corporate reports, and other publications.
They also produce promotional displays, packaging, and marketing brochures for products and services, design distinctive logos for products and businesses, and develop signs and signage systems for business and government.
The application of this unit in the workplace sees a graphic designer developing graphics that incorporate a range of features for cross-media publishing in response to a brief using advanced skills and high-end application. This work would usually be carried out under limited supervision.

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.
