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:

demonstrate an applied understanding of the mechanical properties of musculoskeletal tissues in the context of exercise, immobilisation, ageing and injury

identify musculoskeletal structures using a range of methods and detail their function in the context of human movement, exercise and injury

apply knowledge of muscle actions and musculoskeletal synergies to conduct basic musculoskeletal movement and postural analyses
