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:

understand critical analysis of genre writing, including the differences between literary and popular genres, and the cultural, ideological, and aesthetic factors that have determined the development of specific genres

recognise and understand the various conventions and writing strategies that underpin a range of genres and understand how those conventions may be used in a subversive manner

demonstrate an ability to write within or critically subvert the conventions of a genre/genres of their own choosing

reflect critically and constructively on their own and others' writing.
