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 describe structures and mechanisms involved in hearing loss, the potential impact on speech, language and other sequela, including potential ramifications (in the context of an ICF perspective)
2 differentiate conductive from sensori-neural hearing loss
3 describe the purpose, concepts and equipment associated with assessment of auditory functioning
4 describe intervention strategies for hearing loss and for central auditory processing disorder (CAPD)
5 interpret audiometric results from an audiogram and describe referral and recommendation options for clients with different profiles
6 conduct pure tone audiometric screening and interpret associated results.
