WORK EXPERIENCE   Industrial  Design  Elective  Sem  2,  2013       Grap  2303  /  2304  /  2305  /  1048   Sem  2,  2013       This  student-­‐led  elective  is  an  opportunity  for  Industrial  Design  students  to  undertake  work  experience  in  a  host  organization.     You  will  work  for  72hours  or  more  in  an  industry,  business,  community  not-­‐for-­‐profit  or  government  organisation  or  small   design  practice  to  expand  your  experience  in  undertaking  real  design  projects  of  value  to  the  organisation.    The  course   experience  focuses  on  your  actual  work  experience,  and  requires  a  reflective  report  to  be  submitted  for  assessment.    You  need   to  ballot  for  the  elective  like  all  electives.     Finding  a  host  organization  can  happen  in  two  ways:   1. You  are  pro-­‐active  in  seeking  out  and  negotiating  a  work  experience  agreement  with  a  host,  supported  by  the   guidelines  of  the  Design  in  Action  Program  and  the  DAPCoordinator.     2. You  apply  via  the  DAP  coordinator  to  be  hosted  by  an  organization  listed  as  seeking  students.  For  semester  2,  to  date   this  includes:                                                  Social  Studio                                                  CERES     NOTE:  An  approved  agreement  with  a  host  organization  must  be  signed  off  by  beginning  of  week  3.         Approved  work  experience  may  take  place  prior  to,  and  during  the  semester  of  being  enrolled  in  the  DAP  elective  so  that  your   72  hours  are  completed  before  end  of  week  14  in  the  semester  you  are  enrolled.    (For  example,  72  hours  may  be  undertaken   as  6hours  per  week  for  12  weeks,  or  2  weeks  at  36  hours  per  week.)       Prerequisite:  students  must  have  obtained  Credit  or  higher  grades  in  Design  Studio  and  Design  Studies  courses  for  the  last  year   of  studies.         DAP  elective  coordinated  by  Mick  Douglas



RMIT University Elective Semester 2, 2013 Course Code: GRAP1038 Class No: 4006

Lecturer: Dr Scott Mitchell School of Architecture and Design This course provides an introduction to electronic prototyping for interactive art and design, including embedded technology, wearable devices, intelligent objects and immerse environments. Based around the Arduino micro-controller, the course presents programming techniques and basic electronics in a hands-on tutorial environment. Students will explore a range of sensor inputs including touch, temperature, light and sound and use these inputs to develop active/ reactive objects and environments. Students will gain capabilities in: • Arduino programing • basic electronics including soldering and breadboard prototyping • using sensors to detect stimuli • controlling outputs including motors, lights and sound No prior knowledge of electronics or programming is required. The software and hardware used in the course has been designed specifically for artists and designers to allow for quick, low-cost development and prototyping of interactive projects. All software is open source and available for students to download. Basic equipment will be supplied by RMIT however students are encouraged to bring laptops to class and to purchase their own Arduino micro-controller, breadboard and basic electronic components (total cost of electronics need not exceed $30).
