EDSE11022 - Timber Technology and Design
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for EDSE11022 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 product design and development using a major natural resource, timber. It includes graphical design processes and occupational health and safety considerations in the demonstration of practical and theoretical knowledge and skills that are necessary to teach Industrial Technology and Design in the middle years of schooling (7-10). Knowledge and understanding of timber as a renewable natural resource, and its use in production processes will be gained through working with industrial machinery, digital and hand tool technologies. Students will design, develop, adapt and evaluate projects utilising critical aspects of knowledge about timber, and develop hands-on skills of working with timber-based materials.

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.
