Unit Snapshot


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 discuss neuromaturational and sensory processing theories in the context of occupational performance
2 describe and use standardised and observational procedures to measure sensory motor function during occupational performance
3 demonstrate knowledge of sensory motor problems commonly found in adults and children who have sustained brain impairment
4 plan appropriate occupational therapy interventions that are aimed at improving sensory motor aspects of the whole body and upper limb during occupational task performance
5 evaluate the effectiveness of interventions intended to rectify problems identified
