The final subject in the undergraduate technology and environmental stream requires students to undertake an approach to documenting one's design work per project delivery methods used in the framework of professional practice. This includes development of documentation from concept to construction documentation in the form of industry standard 2D and 3D representation and general strategies for the procurement and project management of projects. This shall include studies of structure, codes and standards, construction systems, materials, services, enclosure, thermal comfort, natural and artificial lighting, climate and acoustics covering content delivered over the length of the undergraduate technology and environmental stream. Advanced methods of communication shall be encouraged and explored where possible and site visits to construction sites undertaken. In preparation for experience in practice, students are provided with an overview of the legislative and legal framework in which the profession operates. Students also undertake a series of tasks that assist in the development of key skills and strategies for use when seeking employment in the industry.

Delivery & attendance
|Attendance and learning activities:||Attend all sessions (Lectures and Tutorials). Most sessions build on the work on the previous one. It is difficult to recover if you miss a session. Attendance in tutorials and labs will be monitored, and could impact the final mark in this subject. While attendance alone is not an assessed portion of the subject mark, the ability for faculty to evaluate each student on his or her PROGRESS in the subject is only possible through direct face-to-face contact within the studio. Students who do not attend classes regularly will not be able to be adequately assessed.|
|Prescribed resources:||No Prescribed resources. After enrolment, students can check the Books and Tools area in iLearn for the full Resource List.|
|[email protected] & Email:||[email protected] is the online learning environment at Bond University and is used to provide access to subject materials, lecture recordings and detailed subject information regarding the subject curriculum, assessment and timing. Both iLearn and the Student Email facility are used to provide important subject notifications. Additionally, official correspondence from the University will be forwarded to students’ Bond email account and must be monitored by the student.|

Assurance of learning
Assurance of Learning means that universities take responsibility for creating, monitoring and updating curriculum, teaching and assessment so that students graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for employability and/or further study.
At Bond University, we carefully develop subject and program outcomes to ensure that student learning in each subject contributes to the whole student experience. Students are encouraged to carefully read and consider subject and program outcomes as combined elements.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
Program Learning Outcomes provide a broad and measurable set of standards that incorporate a range of knowledge and skills that will be achieved on completion of the program. If you are undertaking this subject as part of a degree program, you should refer to the relevant degree program outcomes and graduate attributes as they relate to this subject.
Subject Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
On successful completion of this subject the learner will be able to:
- Develop and demonstrate understanding of design procedures, systems, and methods for articulating a design concept through material detail, and to articulate the comprehensive design through a coherent set of structural and construction systems (AIA Tertiary Education Policy 3.1.1, 3.2.1, and 3.2.2).
- Develop and demonstrate understanding of the building project cycle, the role of the architect, awareness of procurement strategies and relevant codes (AIA Tertiary Education Policy 3.4.1 and 3.4.2)
- Develop and demonstrate a variety of means of communication, including 2D and 3D drawing, presentation, written, oral and modelling skills (AIA Tertiary Education Policy 3.7.1 and 3.7.2).
- Demonstrate effective communication, collaborative and organisational skills in a group setting (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.2).
- Demonstrate understanding of application of appropriate materials in assembly and construction systems and how technological and environmental design involve the resourcing, configuration, and deployment of material in a variety of contexts (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.6.1, 3.6.2, 3.7.2).

- ^ Students must pass this assessment to pass the subject
- * Assessment timing is indicative of the week that the assessment is due or begins (where conducted over multiple weeks), and is based on the standard University academic calendar
- C = Students must reach a level of competency to successfully complete this assessment.
|High Distinction||85-100||Outstanding or exemplary performance in the following areas: interpretative ability; intellectual initiative in response to questions; mastery of the skills required by the subject, general levels of knowledge and analytic ability or clear thinking.|
|Distinction||75-84||Usually awarded to students whose performance goes well beyond the minimum requirements set for tasks required in assessment, and who perform well in most of the above areas.|
|Credit||65-74||Usually awarded to students whose performance is considered to go beyond the minimum requirements for work set for assessment. Assessable work is typically characterised by a strong performance in some of the capacities listed above.|
|Pass||50-64||Usually awarded to students whose performance meets the requirements set for work provided for assessment.|
|Fail||0-49||Usually awarded to students whose performance is not considered to meet the minimum requirements set for particular tasks. The fail grade may be a result of insufficient preparation, of inattention to assignment guidelines or lack of academic ability. A frequent cause of failure is lack of attention to subject or assignment guidelines.|
For the purposes of quality assurance, Bond University conducts an evaluation process to measure and document student assessment as evidence of the extent to which program and subject learning outcomes are achieved. Some examples of student work will be retained for potential research and quality auditing purposes only. Any student work used will be treated confidentially and no student grades will be affected.
Students must check the [email protected] subject site for detailed assessment information and submission procedures.
Policy on late submission and extensions
A late penalty will be applied to all overdue assessment tasks unless an extension is granted by the subject coordinator. The standard penalty will be 10% of marks awarded to that assessment per day late with no assessment to be accepted seven days after the due date. Where a student is granted an extension, the penalty of 10% per day late starts from the new due date.
Policy on plagiarism
University’s Academic Integrity Policy defines plagiarism as the act of misrepresenting as one’s own original work: another’s ideas, interpretations, words, or creative works; and/or one’s own previous ideas, interpretations, words, or creative work without acknowledging that it was used previously (i.e., self-plagiarism). The University considers the act of plagiarising to be a breach of the Student Conduct Code and, therefore, subject to the Discipline Regulations which provide for a range of penalties including the reduction of marks or grades, fines and suspension from the University.
Feedback on assessment
Feedback on assessment will be provided to students within two weeks of the assessment submission due date, as per the Assessment Policy.
If you have a disability, illness, injury or health condition that impacts your capacity to complete studies, exams or assessment tasks, it is important you let us know your special requirements, early in the semester. Students will need to make an application for support and submit it with recent, comprehensive documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer. Students with a disability are encouraged to contact the Disability Office at the earliest possible time, to meet staff and learn about the services available to meet your specific needs. Please note that late notification or failure to disclose your disability can be to your disadvantage as the University cannot guarantee support under such circumstances.
