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:

develop and communicate a written plan to critically address a topic in a core area of psychology

develop skills to write effectively in a scientific style appropriate for psychology

apply critical judgement, reasoning and evidence to the understanding of a core topic covered in the unit
