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 Differentiate structural/organic, functional, psychogenic and neurogenic voice disorders
2 Identify perceptual characteristics of voice disorders
3 Discuss the extent to which voice disorders and laryngectomy can impact on a client's life activities (according to the ICF framework).
4 Demonstrate the processes involved in an appraisal of voice (including perceptual and instrumental measures).
5 Demonstrate a variety of culturally competent, discipline specific and interdisciplinary intervention strategies for people with voice disorders.
