Teaching and Learning

The University and the Business School are committed to maintaining an educational experience for students which combines the best features of new technologies with those of an interactive learning environment, to meet the learning needs of a diverse student body. Support for student learning is extensive and varied. You'll find many exciting opportunities to assist and enrich your academic studies, including various learning tools and resources, study skills and other support.

The Business School is also strongly committed to enhancing the student learning experience through comprehensive assurance of learning procedures embedded within the curriculum. Each program has broad goals and specific objectives that align with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), The University of Western Australia (UWA) Educational Principles and the Business School teaching and learning Operational Priorities.

Program Learning Goals

Program learning goals are higher level learning goals that are broad in scope and that specify the skills and competencies each degree program will impart so students can successfully complete the program and become competent and effective individuals. Program learning goals guide the assessment of learning by providing feedback on the extent to which the program is reaching its agreed goals. Through the use of a curriculum mapping process we also articulate how the individual program learning outcomes will be assessed, and how and where students will learn and develop the skills as outlined in these outcomes. Students’ progress towards achieving program learning outcomes will be evaluated through various assessment tasks and use of assessment tools.

The program learning goals include:

  • discipline specific knowledge and understanding
  • cognitive, technical research skills for lifelong learning
  • oral and written communication skills
  • ability to work as part of a team
  • reflective skills
  • awareness of ethical, cultural, social and sustainability issues
  • leadership and strategic capabilities in a local and global context (MBA)
