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 discuss and apply factors related to linear and rotational kinematics and kinetics
2 explain the concept of forces as the source of changes in motion
3 use biomechanical equations to explain biomechanical relationships
4 explain factors related to tissue mechanics
5 apply functional anatomy and biomechanical concepts to the human body.
