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 describe the principles underlying applied behaviour analysis
2 give examples of translational research where the experimental analysis of behaviour has been applied
3 monitor and implement changes to their own behaviour using behavioural principles
4 plan an effective social change program based on behavioural principles, and illustrate how it would be evaluated
