Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit explores embedded systems development with a focus on device level programming through practice-based workshops and tutorials. Key topics will include programming, hardware interfaces and data communications. You will design and develop a project, build and prototype embedded devices.
This unit builds on concepts of learning through practice in Year 1 of study by introducing you to more complex learning experiences.
You will be introduced to:
- discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
- concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
- the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
- the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice.
You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual
