Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

explore and explain the underpinning principles and practices of regenerative agriculture, including agroecological design

evaluate the factors that can constrain or enable farming systems in relation to the principles of regenerative agriculture

critically evaluate a range of alternative farming systems, through practical experience in horticulture, integrated livestock, cropping, organics and permaculture

create a project relating to an alternative farming system as part of a team
