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:
1 critically engage with the role, value, requirements and issues of the PDHPE (Stage 4 and 5) syllabi within the K-12 continuum of learning and global context
2 demonstrate a working knowledge of the PDHPE (Stage 4 and 5) syllabi through the design of lessons, assessments, resources and activities related to units from a subject syllabus that are informed by teaching and learning priorities including cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities
3 demonstrate a working knowledge of the (Stage 4 and 5) syllabi through the design of lessons, assessments, resources and activities related to units from a subject syllabus that are informed by teaching and learning priorities including differentiation, disability and inclusion, and embedding Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander cultures, digital technologies, literacy and numeracy
4 demonstrate effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies, based on a range of current pedagogical frameworks (e.g. Quality Teaching Framework) designed to encourage the development of knowledge, understanding, skills, and student engagement
