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:

explain the social dimensions of community

analyse the changing nature of community and its role in society

explain how the issues of class, status, gender, ethnicity, race and religion manifest within the context of both ‘traditional’ and ‘modern’ communities

critically explore and reflect upon community issues from varying theoretical standpoints.
