EDSE12026 - Graphics and 2D Computer Aided Design Technologies
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for EDSE12026 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit provides an introduction to graphical and 2 dimensional computer-aided design (CAD). It provides the necessary skills for the demonstration of practical and theoretical knowledge thus enabling you to teach Graphics and 2D CAD in the discipline of Industrial Technology and Design in the middle years of schooling (7-10). You will design, develop, adapt and evaluate projects utilising critical aspects of knowledge about graphics and 2 dimensional drawing. You will develop hands-on drawing skills and the ability to work with 2 dimensional design technologies.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 50%
2. Practical Assessment 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Assessment Title Residential School
Task Description

Practical Assessment

Assessment Title Residential School (Folio of Work)

Task Description

The residential school introduces students to 2D CAD drafting in Auto CAD 2015 and targets topics and applications for the junior year levels. Students will use 2D commands to draw symbols and templates, refine techniques in pictorial sketching, represent objects by considering lighting for shading and shadows, represents design concepts quickly on paper and represent design layouts to industry standards. The opportunity is provided to develop:

· manual drafting and CAD skills

· knowledge and understanding of graphical representations and procedures understanding of the design processes, planning, sequencing

· implementation and assessment of Graphics & 2D CAD technologies through projects incorporated in the residential school.

During the course students will compile a folio of work which includes the activities completed during Residential School and the work completed prior in weeks 1 to 4. This is to be submitted at the end of the Residential School as a hard copy.
