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 explain the body's physiological responses to specific training and environmental stresses, and the relationships between heart rate, oxygen consumption, lactic acid production and workload;
2 explain some of the major factors limiting performance and contributing to fatigue during exercise;
3 demonstrate an understanding of the procedure and responsibilities for involvement in exercise testing and prescription;
4 demonstrate an ability to competently perform the basic exercise physiology practical skills
