Unit aim

Building upon Design Fundamentals, this unit will extend students' individual understanding of Design approaches, supporting the development of valuable personal practices to inform new proposals relevant to students' interests and disciplines. Students will explore skills that support design insight and innovation and will refine bespoke approaches to the resolution of project-based problems and explorations. 

Unit content

  • Plan and manage the design outcome from initial research and concept development to final resolution. 
  • Design solutions and workflow 
  • Understanding of communication conventions
  • Design technology
  • Fulfilling briefs and assessment of design solutions
  • Speaking design from sketch to outcome

 

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

Southern Cross University employs different teaching methods within units to provide students with the flexibility to choose the mode of learning that best suits them. SCU academics strive to use the latest approaches and, as a result, the learning modes and materials may change. The most current information regarding a unit will be provided to enrolled students at the beginning of the study session.

From the 1st of June, 2017, the term 'Distance Education' has been replaced with 'Online'
