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:

demonstrate an understanding of the Human Factors discipline, the role it plays in the safety of aviation operations and its application in other operational environments

describe the interface between systems, technology, environment and the human operators and be able to recognise the strengths, vulnerabilities and weaknesses of the human element in operations

apply Human Factors theory through Crew Resource Management.
