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:

engage in critical thinking about culture, particularly the influence of culture on psychological science, theory, and research

appraise the complexities around inter-cultural communication and how to apply these considerations in practice

describe how individuals and groups can be shaped by, and shape, the culture of which they are a part

critically examine and communicate in a collaborative academic format current issues and debates related to cultural and Indigenous issues in the national and global context
