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 understanding of colonialism as a violating movement and explain how it continues in different social formations

explain the major de-colonising theories and the forms of resistance and denial that emerged in the past and remain evident in contemporary responses

demonstrate an understanding of colonial contexts as an ongoing interplay between concepts of the world that differ fundamentally, and still provide an opportunity for positive change.
