In this unit, you will examine the processes and pedagogy of design and applied learning. Information will be presented about the continuum of design and technology, opportunities for learning and problem solving through designing and making, investigating and devising solutions for better futures. The unit exposes you to teaching, learning and planning issues relating to the discipline of design, considering the way in which we can communicate with others through the items we create and the way we learn about ourselves, our interests and unique abilities through the objects we design and make.
