This Professional Development Workshop will give you information and skills to help you tackle the majority of Junior Graphics courses taught in Queensland schools with confidence. This Practical Workshop provides an introduction to graphical and 2 Dimensional Computer Aided Design (CAD). It provides the necessary skills and theory to enable 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 design technologies. The aim of the Workshop is to enhance your understanding, to introduce ideas and techniques that are more complex while in the context of a supportive classroom environment. As a group, we will practise concept drawing, manual drafting and Computer Aided Design. We will also introduce design/engineering process, investigate unit planning and discuss pedagogy.
This 3-day Practical Workshop includes:
Knowledge of graphics and 2D computer aided designs and processes will be gained through working with hand skills and real-world applications. Students will design, develop, adapt and evaluate projects utilising critical aspects of knowledge about and develop skills.
