Align with course levels

Learning outcomes across levels need to be nuanced to reflect the expectations of students undertaking different courses- for example,  undergraduate or graduate courses of different course lengths (volumes).

Learning outcomes are identified at the course and unit level. They are outlined when a course is first proposed and learning outcomes are then developed for each unit that makes up the course. Ideally, the learning outcomes across all units should allow students to be able to demonstrate the course learning outcomes. This means learning outcomes are aligned.

The course and unit outcomes are incorporated into the Handbook (submitted via Courseloop) to show what students will be able to do or demonstrate at the completion of a course and unit.

Course outcomes need to be differentiated and nuanced according to the exit degree. Click on each accordion item below to learn more about the knowledge, skills and application expected of each award level.

The increasing performance mastery expected from students across courses with different volumes of learning is evident through:

  • the selection of verbs within learning outcomes
  • the differentiation of verbs across each course level
  • increasing levels of performance mastery aligned with increasing volumes of learning.
