- Details for undergraduate courses
- This unit provides a survey of influential designs and design process used by design practitioners from a broad range of disciplines. It introduces a series of digital tools to think through design proposals in order to test, reassess and refine design solutions before implementation. Students are given the opportunity to verbally present their work to tutors and fellow students for valuable feedback throughout the semester. The main objective is for students to explore the design process in an interactive virtual environment.
- Students are able to (1) articulate how designers convey design intent through communication techniques; (2) demonstrate developing skills in digital design; (3) demonstrate developing knowledge of digital design terminology; (4) communicate design intentions to others through a range of media; and (5) undertake verbal presentations of design to others.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) verbal presentations; (2) digital submissions; and (3) final folio. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
