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:

understand the role of simulation modelling in forest management and environmental planning

identify forest and environmental issues that simulation modelling can help to resolve

design and implement a suitable modelling approach for a specified environmental context

gather and synthesise relevant information and calibrate a model for a practical application

complete simulations, document outcomes, and present & discuss findings

identify model limitations and define research needed to strengthen model.
