Develop conservation strategies for cultural resources

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Define components of cultural heritage significance

1.1. Geographic and operational boundaries for conservation policy are defined.

1.2. Results of studies of cultural significance for places and areas within the boundaries are reviewed and collated to develop park/reserve/region significance.

1.3. Limits of acceptable change in the forms of deterioration and damage to the places of cultural significance are developed to legislative and enterprise requirements.

2. Review past strategies, plans and activities

2.1. Previous strategies and plans are compared with collated assessment of significance to determine compatibility.

2.2. Current activities in the area are reviewed to assess their compatibility with the collated assessment of significance.

2.3. Areas of incompatibility are documented to enterprise procedures.

3. Review current and potential resource uses

3.1. Impact of current uses on the cultural resources, including setting and surrounds, is assessed against the set limits of acceptable change to determine success of conservation approach.

3.2. Feasible uses and/or client requirements are assessed.

3.3. Possible changes to uses are developed to ensure cultural values are maintained.

4. Identify threats to cultural places

4.1. Threats to cultural significance, both external and internal to the area under consideration, are identified.

4.2. A risk assessment is made of all threats to determine potential impact on strategies.

4.3. Policy changes required to address the threats are documented to enterprise requirements.

5. Develop strategies for management of cultural resource

5.1. Draft policy is developed to address the cultural significance that meets any shortfalls in previous strategies, allows for compatible resource uses, and addresses risks associated with any threats to the cultural values of the area.

5.2. Consultations are conducted with stakeholders on draft policy in accordance with legislative, enterprise and good practice requirements.

5.3. Consultations comply with cultural protocols and enterprise approaches to stakeholders.
