|School||Moray House School of Education
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This half course develops and enhances the students' skills, knowledge and understanding of the issues involved with materials, manufacturing processes, compulsory health and safety legislation (BS4163 and PUWER 98) as it applies to Design and Technology Environments, and the theory and practice managing practical elements of learning and teaching in Design and Technology.
Students are expected to audit their current skill-sets and knowledge of materials origin, use, consideration of sustainability, manual and machine processes, and health and safety in a teaching environment. Individual students will arrive on course with a variety of previous experience and qualifications. Their capabilities are developed through practical, theoretical and scenario focussed activities.
Manufacturing Principles and Practice 1 course relates to other courses such as Design, Principles & Practices 2, Product Design Innovation 1 and 2 (Contexts and Final Project and Design and Technology Curriculum and Pedagogy 2.
The legislation and practice based workshops will further support Manufacturing 2 -where skills and knowledge in professional standard modelling, computer aided manufacturing and higher risk processes are developed.
Themes of Education 1 A (Lifespan, Socialisation and Learning) and Education 1B (Teaching and learning and the Social Context of Education) are developed through the examination of the role of Useful Play, Creating and Making in child development; the socialisation of young learners in high risk learning environments; teaching and learning approaches, individual needs and differentiation and the value and purposes of craft and manufacture in 21st century schooling.
Entry Requirements (not applicable to Visiting Students)
||Other requirements|| None
|Additional Costs|| Personal protection: dust coat, eye protection, sturdy shoes, mask, ear defenders.
