MODULE DETAILS

DILLTC604: Lamp Technologies

 

Nominal duration: 5 weeks (60 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 begins with a historical perspective on lamp technologies and covers the principles of operation, light and energy characteristics, and common applications of all modern lamp technologies: from tungsten filament and gas discharge lamps to the rise of LED and OLED technologies. Issues of sustainability and energy regulation for lamps are also addressed.

MODULE PURPOSE

The purpose of this module is for participants to develop knowledge about contemporary lamp technologies.

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.

 

Questioning techniques should not require language, literacy and numeracy skills beyond those required in this
