Experiment with techniques to produce glasswork

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
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver CUAGLA401, 'Experiment with techniques to produce glasswork'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Experiment with techniques to produce glasswork' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Develop proficiency with a range of glassworking techniques and media

1.1 Evaluate potential for new approaches to glasswork based on capabilities of known techniques

1.2 Adapt or introduce new equipment, tools and materials to achieve different effects

1.3 Extend own capability with glassworking techniques through experimentation on samples, practice pieces or a work in progress

1.4 Assess safety and sustainability issues for different techniques and media

2. Develop ideas for glasswork

2.1 Discuss, with key people, creative and other goals for own glass objects

2.2 Research, adapt and use relevant ideas and approaches from other practitioners and comply with intellectual property requirements

2.3 Use knowledge of different glassworking techniques to inform ideas

2.4 Consider how different techniques and ideas can best work together

2.5 Assess the professional potential and presentation requirements of own work to inform ideas

2.6 Refine and confirm ideas based on research, experimentation and collaboration with others

3. Organise glassworking resources

3.1 Identify specific resource requirements for the chosen work

3.2 Research potential sources of supply for glasswork resources

3.3 Evaluate cost and other constraints that impact on development of the work

3.4 Evaluate and respond to presentation considerations for finished glass objects

3.5 Coordinate required resources and set up according to safety requirements

4. Create finished glasswork

4.1 Create glass objects using techniques and media selected from research and experimentation, considering and applying elements and principles of design

4.2 Review and refine ideas and approaches based on ongoing experience with production of own work

4.3 Handle equipment, tools and materials safely; minimise and safely dispose of waste throughout all processes

4.4 Document development of own work and the research and ideas that informed it

5. Evaluate own glasswork

5.1 Reflect on own conceptual development and technical execution of the work

5.2 Identify areas for future skill development and options to learn

5.3 Discuss completed work with others and consider all feedback
