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 apply the academic skill of numeracy in relevant mathematical operations
2 explain and apply concepts related to kinematics, kinetics, balance and machines
3 explain and apply concepts related to work, energy, momentum, impulse and fluid dynamics
4 integrate and apply musculoskeletal functional anatomy with biomechanical concepts as a whole in examples of human motion.
