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 define and differentiate chemical terms and concepts as they relate to biomedical science and human health.
2 calculate chemical quantities and solve problems of an applied chemical nature.
3 describe the chemical and physical properties of organic functional groups.
4 record experimental data and explain the link between theory and the experimental process.
