method of learning outcomes verification


Methods of verification:

For object defined six learning outcomes verified through the implementation of :

  • Design tasks (W1- U05, U14 - W1, W1- U12, W1- K11, K05 - W1)
  • Short exercises durring the classes (W1- W02)
  • The systematic sketching in the amount of 14 drawings / week ( W1- W02)
  • The presence and participation in lectures (W1- W02, W1- U14 , U12 - W1)

Examination of the subject requirements:

  • Examination of the subject requires student presence at classes with at most 3 unexcused absences durring semester and commitment of all project tasks.

  • Execution of the exercises during the classes (no execution will be treated as the absence from classes)

subject description

Subject’s base target is to improve manual and theoretical designer skills by achieving smaller goals in fields of sketching and visual presentation techniques like:

  • learning how to correctly and consciously draw objects in space, represent content or phenomena in order to optimize the expression and presentation of design solutions
  • attention to a variety of reproduction capabilities depending on the context and by selecting the appropriate components such as the selection of tools such as drawing, design, typography included in final solution presentations
  • learning opportunities offered by the implementation of tasks in a graphical programs
  • improving knowledge and skills of manual and computer according to personal capabilities within the field of study undertaken
  • an indication of the sources and efficient ways of acquiring knowledge about program content
  • improving hand sketching, and preparing rapid visualizations by editing them in computer programs
short subject description

design sketching and visual presentation techniques


form of classes

Examination consists of tasks and exercices done and documented by the student durring the semester.


subject area coverage
  • Exercises and theory presentations cover typical rapid sketching issues from drawing basic primitve shapes to more complex surfaces in perspective including: perpspective rules, construction, section drawing, lightning/ shading, reproducing visual propoperties of typical materials.
  • Finding drawing more as a rational, modeling tool than only a self-expresion medium and mixing it with edition in graphical programs.
  • Learning computer graphic basics ( difference beetwen on screen and print preparation, vector and bitmap etc., composing images with text or photography) and improving graphic programs handling.
