Interpret sectional views on an engineering drawing
Sectioning is used to show detail on a drawing that cannot be seen clearly from the outside. The cutting plane (section plane) is the plane that cuts through a component to create a sectional view showing the internal details that cannot be seen from the outside. It's like cutting an apple in half. A cutting plane does not necessarily need to cut the whole object. There are three major types of sections used in engineering drawing: full section, half section, and part section.
Identify the types of engineering drawings used in industry
Engineering drawings show what a component looks like and how to manufacture it. The main types of drawings are assembly drawings, subassembly drawings, detail assembly drawings, and detail drawings. The Australian Engineering Drawing Handbook (Part 1) is produced by Standards Australia and outlines the basic principles and techniques.
Plan for minimal Environment Impact Practices
This unit is about planning for minimal environmental impact. It is of a practical nature - you will need to show your understanding of the unit competencies in practical ways, that is, in the field and over a period of time. It covers the knowledge and skills to plan outdoor activities to ensure that minimal environmental impact occurs. At the end of your study, you should understand key ecological concepts and identify sources and types of environmental impact. You will become aware of land ma
Teams in the workplace - Working in a team
An introduction to team skills required by lab technicians working in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers the different types of teams found in the workplace.
Determine control mechanisms and corrective actions for food safety hazards
The monitoring system within a food safety program indicates whether the critical control point is under control. It provides feedback that the product is being produced safely. The main types of monitoring are visual inspections, time and temperature measurements, chemical measurements and microbial measurements. When it is determined that a critical control point has not been controlled during production, corrective action must be taken to overcome the problem and bring

Draw and use simple maps, plans and drawings
This Unit of Competency focuses on how to read and interpret maps, plans and drawings and prepare a simple map or plan. It contains information, activities and suggested assessment tasks that enable learners to understand the basic features of a map, such as legends, identify different types of maps, including topographical maps, and use essential map-reading and field skills, such as using a compass.
Learning about Users from Observation
Many approaches and systems for recommending information, goods, or other kinds of objects have been developed in recent years. In these systems, machine learning methods are often used that need training input to acquire a user interest profile. Such methods typically need positive and negative evidence of the user’s interests. To obtain both kinds of evidence, many systems make users rate relevant objects explicitly. Others merely observe the user’s behavior, which yields positive evidence
Conservation and biodiversity
Dr. Richard Field research interests lie in conservation, biodiversity and the forces that structure ecological communities. In this podcast, Dr Field from the School of Geography compares and contrasts his experiences as a researcher in national parks in Honduras and Indonesia, and the different types of ecological communities he has studied, and goes on to introduce the emerging field of conservation bio-geography.

Values and Motivations (Careers)
This activity is designed to help students think about what is important to them in a job, by completing tasks in which they examine their personal values and what factors motivate or de-motivate them at work. The tasks are designed to prompt students to think more broadly about their values and motivations, and not to be confined by their current work situation. In reflecting on their values and motivations, students will be in a position to consider the extent to which their values and motiv
