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 identify the normal functioning of smooth and skeletal muscle and the control of body movement
2 explain the mechanisms underlying the normal functions of the muscular, cardiovascular and respiratory systems and the regulation of these functions in response to changes in the internal and external environment
3 explain the mechanisms underlying the normal functions of the urinary, digestive, immune and reproductive systems and the regulation of these functions in response to changes in the internal and external environment
4 explain the integration of various body systems in the homeostatic control of regulated variables.
