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: , GA2: , GA3: , GA4: , GA5: , GA6: , GA7:
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 analyse a wide range of current issues in teaching and learning mathematics and numeracy in early childhood and the primary school curriculum, and in assessing student performance in these areas
2 design differentiated teaching and learning strategies to meet the needs of diverse classrooms/early childhood settings and to empower learners across key transition points
3 design formative and summative assessment tasks with feedback, moderation and reporting
4 analyse contemporary approaches to addressing the needs of low attaining students in mathematics and numeracy
5 demonstrate effective use of ICTs for teaching and learning of mathematics in diverse classrooms/early childhood settings
