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:

describe the anatomic structures and physiological processes involved in respiration and phonation for speech production

explain the anatomic structures and physiological processes involved in articulation and resonance, hearing, auditory perception and swallowing

describe processes involved in conducting aspects of investigating structure and function of the oral-musculature mechanism

outline some pathologies that impact on speech production, speech reception and swallowing
