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:

demonstrate a sound knowledge of the relevant primary school syllabus and relevant early childhood curriculum requirements

demonstrate models of pedagogy, and a range of strategies, for teaching and assessing PDHPE, including the use of ICTs

identify and critically examine sensitive issues relating to teaching PDHPE and discover correct protocol and procedures to effectively handle a variety of issues, including issues around child protection, wellbeing and safety

meaningfully integrate PDHPE across other KLAs and across key transition points (early childhood/primary/secondary)
