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:
differentiate between major contemporary theories about writing and written texts and the relationship of texts to cultural practices
recognise the theoretical positions underlying particular critical approaches to writing and textual analysis
understand the significance of the social and cultural contexts in which texts are made and read
apply literary theories to textual analysis in a range of academic writing forms.
