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.

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 Demonstrate an understanding of the nature and history of the major oceans
2 Explain the unusual nature of water and how it affects the oceans and climatic systems of the planet
3 Explain the nature and operation of currents, waves and tides in coastal and oceanic waters
4 Recognise the ways in which we use the marine environment and how those uses may interact with natural processes
5 Demonstrate an understanding of what resource management really does, and how it tries to do it
6 Write a scientific report that incorporates statistical analysis of data, follows the instructions to authors for a peer-reviewed journal, and uses Endnote for referencing
