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:
demonstrate an understanding of auto/biographical theory and practice
demonstrate an ability to devise and develop a creative project within a life-writing genre of their own choosing
analyse and interpret a range of critical approaches relevant to auto/biography
reflect critically and constructively on their own and others' writing.
