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:

evaluate the influence of economic, political, social and cultural factors on the continuing development of the industrial relations system.

critically analyse the principles and policies underlying the Australian Industrial Relations system.

explain and evaluate the legal framework of the Australian Industrial Relations system, including key legislative and common law principles;
