Course Description

This unit involves the application of knowledge and skills to produce industry standard perspective drawings, plans and elevations in retail or exhibition environments in response to client briefs.

Most of this course will be presented face to face within scheduled class time. In most cases, work briefs will be started in class. It is strongly advised that students ensure regular attendance, for demonstration and/or explanation of work requirements and briefs to ensure that students gain the required underpinning knowledge.

Details of Learning Activities

There will be a range of learning activities in this unit, including*

Demonstrations, presentations, including AV presentations, online Blackboard
Supervised studio/class activity, blended learning
Research and practical projects. Simulated industry/client role play.

*Some learning activities will include self-directed learning. Self-directed learning refers to organised activities that students undertake independently, either as individuals or with colleagues. This may include workplace research, library assignments, fieldwork, and work placements.

Note: "Technical Drawing" encompasses both WRRVM7A - Produce Perspective Drawings Plans and Elevations (MKTG5862C - RMIT code) Semester 1, and WRRVM6A - Produce Working Drawings (MKTG5868C - RMIT code) Semester 2. To gain an assessment of "Competent CA" in Technical Drawing students must successfully complete and pass both WRRVM7A - Produce Perspective Drawings Plans and Elevations, and WRRVM6A - Produce Working Drawings. Teaching schedule correct at time of publication but may be subject to change.

Overview of Assessment

*  Developing project brief
*  Application of technical skills

Progressive work on, and completion of projects may occur in scheduled class time, but also as part of blended/self-directed learning.

Students will also need to log on to Blackboard to access information, work requirements, and content.

The work requirements progressively increase in complexity and depth. Subsequent work builds upon knowledge, skills and competence gained from earlier work. To maximise your chances for successful completion of the course, it is strongly advised that students regularly attend classes and keep up to date. Please bring all your drawing equipment to each class as this will enable you to do the prescribed work and make the best use of your scheduled class time.
Assessment
The course will be graded by cumulative assessment throughout the whole year. Note: The mere submission of a work requirement does not in itself guarantee a pass or an assessment of “competent”. To gain a pass or to be assessed as competent, the submitted work must, at a minimum, be submitted on time, satisfy all requirements of the brief to the required standard. Students must successfully complete all assessment tasks to pass this course

Attendance
Students are strongly advised to attend classes regularly and to keep up to date in their work requirements. Regular attendance and participation in class will ensure that students will satisfy the requirements of the following point.

Authenticity and proof of authorship – How does a teacher know it really is your work?
Any work submitted by a student for assessment by their teacher must satisfy proof of authorship or authenticity – i.e. Your teacher must be satisfied that the work submitted by you is actually your work. Your teacher must see you engaged in the production of the work - commence, work on, complete, and/or discuss the particular work requirement with your teacher. Unless these conditions have been met, the teacher can refuse to accept and/or assess any work requirement as “your work”.

Plagiarism – The following definition has been taken from the RMIT University web site
“Plagiarism - 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 presentations. Plagiarism occurs when the origin of the material used is not appropriately cited.” RMIT Plagiarism policy

Put simply, do not copy/take another person’s work and pass it off as your own.

Working and collaborating with colleagues is a great way to learn together and teachers would enthusiastically encourage this. In this situation, it is important that each student produces his or her own work for submission. Do not, as a group, produce just the one piece of work, make a copy of the same work for each team member and then individually submit it as “your work”.



Assessment Tasks

Assessment will consist of a mix of graded and non-graded technical drawing projects/briefs. Where projects are not graded, the teacher will provide feedback on the project in class. Assessment will be ongoing and cumulative.
1 Exercises where you will demonstrate skills and knowledge of perspective drawing conventions, and correct use of drawing equipment and materials. You will demonstrate skills, knowledge and competency in technical drawing such as, scale, notation, layout, accuracy, reference symbols, abbreviations, dimensioning, sectioning, and using technical drafting equipment.
2 Produce technical drawings of fixtures/objects, retail and/or exhibition environments in specified the perspective.
3 Produce technical or perspective drawings from plans, elevations and client briefs.
*Note:
All projects must be completed and submitted (on time) with two completed proforma cover sheets.
All projects must be submitted and assessed as competent to complete these units successfully.
Some projects assessed in these units will be graded.
You may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for these units. Please see your teacher for more information. 

Technical Drawing runs for the full year therefore grades will be finalised at the end of semester 2.

Assessment Tasks
1 1 Point Grid – You will produce a 1 point grid of interior space delineating scale representations of floor, walls, and ceiling.
2 1 Point Drawing – You will produce 1 point perspective drawing/s where objects are positioned correctly in a given space according to a given plan. The objects will be drawn to correct dimensions as specified.
3 2 Point Grid - You will produce 2 point perspective drawing/s where objects are positioned correctly in a given space according to specifications. The objects will be drawn to correct dimensions as specified. Drawing/s will be rendered in colour finishes appropriate for the retail/event environment.
4 Multiple Vanishing Points – You will produce multi-point perspective drawing/s from given industry brief.

You will produce drawings to nominated perspective and scales as discussed in class. In completing these drawings, you will demonstrate competence in understanding and interpreting given plans, elevations and briefs. You will be required to demonstrate an understanding of, and competency in technical drawing skills such as, scale, notation, layout, accuracy, reference symbols, abbreviations, and using technical drafting equipment.
