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.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

compare mechanistic and complex adaptive systems worldviews and how this influences ecological perspectives

undertake reflective analysis on the relationship between worldview and land management

describe and interpret one’s relationship with the natural world
