Learning outcomes

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:

identify and analyse the role of play in learning and examine the challenges pertaining to play and pedagogies

discuss the diversity of approaches to pedagogies utilised in early childhood education and care, and how they position children, teachers and parents/carers
