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 develop innovative teaching programs and units of work and innovative pedagogical approaches for sequential learning in Technologies subjects including differentiation to meet the diverse needs and interests of students
2 critically analyse the principles and practices of keeping accurate and reliable records and writing reports for students, parents and care givers
3 demonstrate extensive knowledge of assessment practices including rubrics, marking guidelines, marking criteria and the use of performance band descriptors for Technologies courses and for the evaluation of teaching to inform future planning and practice
4 critically analyse suitable management practices including budgeting and selecting, storing, maintaining and replacing materials and equipment within a Technologies department
