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 Understand the role of simulation modelling in forest management and environmental planning
2 Identify forest and environmental issues that simulation modelling can help to resolve
3 Design and implement a suitable modelling approach for a specified environmental context
4 Gather and synthesise relevant information and calibrate a model for a practical application
5 Complete simulations, document outcomes, and present & discuss findings
6 Identify model limitations and define research needed to strengthen model
