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:
Assess the contexts of infant and toddler education and care in terms of their structures, histories, regulations and priorities
Identify and evaluate proposals of ‘quality’ for infant and toddler learning, development and care
Demonstrate ethical and professional conduct in the professional experience setting
