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 relevant Australian syllabuses and the early childhood curriculum requirements, and suggest ways to translate these curriculum documents into practice, emphasising sustainability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and knowledge

develop the skills of working scientifically and technologically across a range of early childhood and primary contexts to develop teaching–learning activities which provide opportunities for children to use these skills

design teaching and learning strategies or lessons and incorporate diagnostic, formative and summative student assessment to maximise student engagement especially students with mixed ability and/or from diverse backgrounds.

reflect critically upon a range of pedagogical and curriculum issues associated with implementing science and technology across early childhood and primary education
