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:

evaluate differences between mechanistic and complex adaptive systems worldviews and how this influences ecological perspectives, science and land management practice

apply reflective analysis to understand the relationship between worldview and land management, including one's personal relationship with the natural world

develop an understanding of the role of Indigenous thinking and knowledges, including their role for supporting transformative change in agriculture

bring diverse and multidisciplinary knowledges together to explain what may be required to enable transformative change
