Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to explore and apply the design process in a 2-dimensional (2D) way in response to a brief. This is a core unit in design fundamentals and as such underpins many other specialisation units. People working in many industries require the skills and knowledge in this unit, and the unit is written to allow for contextualisation to a particular industry context.


Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Overview of Assessment

The assessment context must provide for:

   -  project or work activities that allow the candidate to access and apply design processes to a specific context

Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:

   -  evaluation of samples

   -  questioning and discussion

   -  review of portfolios of evidence

   -  third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate

Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands (eg literacy) and the needs of particular groups (eg people with disabilities, and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties such as speakers of languages other than English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).
