Identify and manage new building design technologies

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.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Identify and manage new building design technologies' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria


Analyse the availability of new technologies


Research is conducted to identify and analyse the range of new technologies that are available to the building design sector.


Applications of the new technologies and the potential benefits to the business are assessed.


Costs of acquiring and using new technologies are evaluated to inform purchase decision.


Decisions are made about the optimum software and hardware solutions to meet the immediate and medium-terms needs of the practice.


Introduce technology to the practice


Purchase, installation and commissioning of new technologies are planned and managed.


Staff training in the use of new technologies is organised and undertaken.


Potential benefits and uses of the technology are communicated to client.


Documentation to support efficient and effective usage is completed.


Manage the use of BIM


Benefits of using BIM to work collaboratively in the design, modelling, documentation and management of buildings during their life cycle are communicated to related professionals.


Protocols and the specification of input and output parameters are developed and communicated to related professionals.


Processes to monitor BIM usage are developed and put in place.


Processes to manage the creation, labelling, storage and sharing of files and materials are developed and put in place.


Resourcing and budgeting to manage the ongoing use of the system are identified and put in place.
