FORUMS

They consist of an introductory talk from a VCAA Reviewer
or Curriculum Advisor addressing the School-Assessed
Task using examples from Top Designs exhibited works,
folios and design plans.

This is followed by a presentation by an industry
professional, who represents best practice within their
particular field of design. The Forum allows time for Q&A,
students are encouraged to prepare questions for the
speakers.

Students then visit the Top Designs exhibition.
