MODULE DETAILS

DILSAL612: Special Applications in Lighting Design

 

Nominal duration: 4 weeks (48 hours total time commitment)

 

This time commitment includes the structured activities, preparation reading, attendance at each webinar, completing exercises, practical assessments and proctored assessments.

It is also expected that students spend additional time on readings, personal study, independent research and learning, practicing on remote labs and required software and working on any projects and assignments.

This module covers specialty lighting design considerations such as stage, event, healthcare, landscape and horticultural lighting.

MODULE PURPOSE

The purpose of this module is to introduce participants to specialty lighting design considerations, thereby further building on lighting design concepts and scenarios already mastered in previous modules.

SPECIALISED RESOURCES

 

ASSESSMENT STRATEGY

METHODS OF ASSESSMENT

Assessors should gather a range of evidence that is valid, sufficient, current and authentic. Evidence can be gathered through a variety of ways including direct observation, supervisor's reports, project work, structured assessments, samples and questioning. This will include short answer questions on the knowledge content, the use of remote and virtual labs, and writing tasks to apply the learning to academic tasks.

 

CONDITIONS OF ASSESSMENT

Assessors must:

·         hold the appropriate assessor competency standards as outlined in regulations; and

·         be able to demonstrate vocational competencies at least to the level being assessed; and

·         be able to demonstrate how they are continuing to develop their VET knowledge and skills as well as maintaining their industry currency and assessor

competence.
