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:

investigate research to support the design of a well-integrated and comprehensive methodological approach addressing questions of concern

design and implement an evaluation strategy that respectfully addresses the values and beliefs of all stakeholders consistent with professional standards of ethical conduct

prepare an evidence-based evaluation proposal for an identified aspect of occupational therapy practice

evaluate research proposals and reports of professional peers consistent with peer review guidelines employed by academic journals and scholars in occupational therapy.
