Drafting Lab Management Guide.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Instructional Materials Lab.
This manual was developed to guide drafting instructors and vocational supervisors in sequencing laboratory instruction and controlling the flow of work for a 2-year machine trades training program. The first part of the guide provides information on program management (program description, safety concerns, academic issues, implementation strategies, and evaluation strategies), lifetime skills, entrepreneurship skills, a list of items needed for student tool kits, the drafting laboratory and consumable items, lists of units of instruction for conventional or computer-aided drafting programs, and a competency list for a conventional drafting program. Following sections contain information on organization of the 2 years of the program and outlines of 11 units for junior year and 12 units for senior year. Each unit includes time allotted, lab status, number of new competencies, instructional objective, list of competencies, equipment, tools, materials, and supplies; and suggested management and evaluation strategies. The junior year units cover the following topics: developing professional behavior; developing basic lab skills; drawing geometric projections; creating orthographic projections; dimensioning; sectioning; developing and reinforcing competencies; drawing pictorials; drawing intersections and developments; developing basic computer-aided design skills; and developing and reinforcing competencies. Senior units cover reviewing junior year; developing intermediate computer-aided design skills; preparing machine drawings; developing and reinforcing competencies; preparing architectural drawings; preparing structural drawings; developing and reinforcing competencies; mapping; surveying; preparing electrical and electronic drawings; and developing and reinforcing competencies. An appendix provides drafting laboratory progress charts for recording student competencies. (KC)
