Workshop Summary:

This intensive 3-Day Residential Workshop will give you information and skills to help you tackle the majority of Junior Graphics courses taught in Queensland schools with confidence.

This Residential 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 practice concept drawing, manual drafting and Computer Aided Design. We will also introduce design/engineering process, investigate unit planning and discuss pedagogy.

There are two locations for the 3-Day Workshop for you to choose to attend. Please email b.connolly@cqu.edu.au your preference.
