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 explain the relationship between molecular and morphological structure and the properties of fibres
2 describe the structure and properties of a range of textile yarns and fabric
3 identify the use of finishing techniques to enhance fabric performance
4 identify principles and processes of colour to fibres, yarns and fabrics
5 apply a range of functional and aesthetic tests to evaluate fabric properties
6 identify appropriate fabrics for a range of end uses
7 critically analyse the history of and contemporary aspects for the Australian Textile, Clothing and Footwear Industries.
