Learning outcomes

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:

characterise the major processes controlling the concentration, distribution, and fate of chemical elements and species in natural environments

synthesise, evaluate and apply concepts of biomagnification, bioaccumulation, toxicology, biotolerance, bioremediation and green chemistry

collect, evaluate and interpret field data for environmental assessment and monitoring

synthesise scientific information into written and spoken presentations for diverse audiences.
