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 demonstrate knowledge of advanced clinical anatomy of the lumbo-pelvic and lower limb regions
2 demonstrate knowledge of advanced functional anatomy of the lumbo-pelvic and lower limb regions
3 demonstrate a basic knowledge of embryological development and microscopic anatomy of the lumbo-pelvic and lower limb regions
4 describe the general mechanical properties of biological tissues, and the kinematics of human movement of the lumbo-pelvis and lower limb
5 explain the functional relationship of anatomical features and biomechanics of the lumbo-pelvic and lower limb regions
