To develop a visual understanding of the digital drawing process and methods of digital production with the use of computer aided drafting and three-dimensional design applications.


To learn and apply digital presentation techniques and communication skills that strengthen drawing vocabulary, graphic knowledge, and proficiency. 


To gain knowledge in organizing a set of drawings using computer aided 2D drafting and 3D modeling.


Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, students will be able to:


Apply various 2D and 3D digital design tools such as AutoCad and Rhino in elementary landscape architectural design applications;


Manage file structures;


Critically evaluate distinctions between technical and illustrative graphics for use in different representational application contexts;


Produce elementary image animations; and


Deliver verbal and visual presentations using the digital applications.

mlnosbis 2/20/2018:
-Syllabus should include full instructor contact information (including office hours).
-Are the listed textbooks required or recommended?
-Syllabus should include a breakdown of how grades are determined. Listing the PRR is not enough. Explain how assignments will be graded and what constitutes each letter grade. Example: A+ = ____, A = ____, etc.

cohen 2/24/2018:
1. Under Instructor's Policies on Attendance (Section 11), what happens if a student is, say, in the hospital for three classes? Will the student lose a letter grade?
2. Under Excused Absences (Section 11) in the syllabus, it appears that students must contact the instructor prior to class for each excused absence. There are times when that may not be possible. (The example on the syllabus is potentially one such time.) How will those absences be treated?
3. Students miss two full weeks of classes for Thanksgiving and Fall break. Do the students work on assignments during those two weeks? In those semesters when the class meetings are on Wednesday, does the class meet the week of Fall break?

- No concerns.
arrl (Tue, 15 Sep 2015 20:32:08 GMT): Rollback: The credit hours for a lab do not work out. This course is better listed as a lecture because students will be receiving direct instruction in the class.
