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.

GA1: , GA2: , GA3: , GA4: , GA5: , GA6: , GA7:
On completion of this unit, students should be able to: GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 analyse the origins, features and outcomes of passive resistance within a dominated population
2 critically examine the drivers of laterally violent behaviour in groups as a basis for understanding harm, perpetration and tolerance
3 analyse through case studies ameliorating approaches and care based transformations.
