Learning outcomes and graduate attributes

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:

GA1: Intellectual rigour, GA2: Creativity, GA3: Ethical practice, GA4: Knowledge of a discipline, GA5: Lifelong learning, GA6: Communication and social skills, GA7: Cultural competence
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 Engage with the design process to plan and manage their design outcome from initial research and concept development to final resolution.
2 Construct design solutions utilising the media and processes expected in their specialisation.
3 Produce design solutions that demonstrate a clear understanding of communication conventions, but with an open attitude to inquiry and experimentation.
4 Identify and expertly use the technology appropriate for each design outcome.
5 Critically assess their design solutions in order to improve their final outcome.
6 Articulate an informed rationale for each communication design solution.
