Learning outcomes and graduate attributes

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:

GA1: Intellectual rigour, GA2: Creativity, GA3: Ethical practice, GA4: Knowledge of a discipline, GA5: Lifelong learning, GA6: Communication and social skills, GA7: Cultural competence
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 describe aspects and dynamics of hydrology and climatology, such as atmospheric moisture, soil moisture, and groundwater, and explain the linkages between the atmosphere and hydrosphere
2 collect and analyse hydrological and climatological data
3 apply these data to hydrological and climatological problem solving.
