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 understand the broader role of the teacher and the professional responsibilities required as a member of a school and the wider community;
2 collect data using a variety of approaches to gain an in-depth understanding of student learning that will inform the development of teaching and learning programs that are differentiated in response to students’ needs and can be used as evidence to demonstrate impact on learning
3 select and implement a range of suitable teaching and learning strategies that engage and enhance the student learning experience.
4 develop and implement suitable summative assessments that align to the learning objectives, evidenced through a cognitive commentary of the student response that supports the moderation process and informs the accuracy of assessment, grading and future planning for teaching.
