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 the principles underpinning the theory and the key elements of cooperative learning skills
2 engage with technology to practise and develop cooperative skills through working within a group to research, synthesise and evaluate findings related to the strengths and weaknesses of cooperative learning
3 consider and discuss the differences between theories that inform and the structures that create and develop a classroom environment in which cooperative practices enhance learning
4 analyse cooperative interaction patterns and their cognitive and affective outcomes in order to plan and teach for a purpose, using cooperative learning to manage communication, thinking and social skills development
