Students undertaking VCAL Design Technology will undertake a year of Product Design Technology and this will contribute to the accreditation of VCE Unit 1 or 2 Product Design Technology.
Unit 1 Product Re-design and Sustainability (Yr 11)
Unit 2 Collaborative Design (Yr 12)
Product Design Technology study encourages students to assume the role of designer maker and develop knowledge and skills to produce effective and creative responses to design challenges. Design and technology focuses on developing an understanding of social, economic and environmental consequences of design choices and decision-making.
In Semester One VCAL students will undertake a collaborative community based project, whilst Semester Two will give students the opportunity to design and construct their own personal design project.
The program does vary from year to year, meaning that VCAL students can undertake this elective in both Year 11 and Year 12 should they wish.
