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 employ a Speech Pathology assessment protocol including: conducting an initial interview, taking a case history, administering a standardised test and collecting speech and language samples
2 apply transcription and analysis procedures to speech, language and communication samples (including samples from standardised tests), interpret clinical data using the ICF framework (with guidance) and explain clinical decisions
3 identify intervention targets and formulate intervention plans (collaboratively with the Speech Pathology clinical educator) and, with guidance, implement intervention that is tailored to a particular child's speech, language and pre-literacy profile and is in line with best practice guidelines and evidence-based practice information
4 apply interpersonal communication skills to interact with clients and caregivers in an engaging, sensitive, supportive, responsive and productive manner during assessment and intervention contexts
5 with guidance, appraise responses to intervention measure outcomes, provide verbal and written feedback on results of intervention, make appropriate recommendations and referrals and use effective professional reporting (oral and written)
6 demonstrate professional and ethical behaviour and reflect and report accurately on performance as a student clinician
7 demonstrate an ability to be inquiring and reflective in practice and via a reflective journal and portfolio.
