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.

identify the major types of pests and disease pathogens and demonstrate enhanced understanding of disease epidemiology, transmission of zoonoses and One Health

systematically access information using National and Global databases for pests, diseases and weeds and demonstrate enhanced understanding of the regulatory requirements for notifiable pests and diseases.
