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:

Critically assess leadership style, management skills, communication skills and ethical decision-making, both personally and within the context of managing projects

Apply individual, and team-working skills, knowledge and conceptual models in the context of managing projects
