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 demonstrate knowledge of kinetic and kinematic concepts
2 demonstrate knowledge of the mechanics of normal and abnormal structure and function of the body
3 apply techniques of biomechanical assessment and gait analysis
4 apply contemporary biomechanical theories to conduct and evaluate an assessment of the lower limb
5 interpret the relationship between biomechanical disorders and clinical manifestations.
