2. Intended Learning Outcomes of Programmes Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

3. Consider the curriculum of the programme developed • This now broadly indicates the content of the Programme • Depth and level still need to be defined • In Engineering it is required that graduates should be able to design artefacts Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

4. An aero engine • A 20KV power transmission line • A computer • A numerically controlled process • Or • A table • A trap door • A torch Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

5. At graduate level, depending on the discipline we are focussing on the former and a graduate in any discipline must have the following attributes to a certain level. So, the curriculum and more particularly the final year should facilitate and ensure this overall outcome Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

6. Standards and levels of curriculum content must facilitate and ensure the achievement of or Outcomes in: • Knowledge • Understanding • Intellectual skills • Practical and professional skills • General and transferable skills Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

7. Knowledge ILOs of a programme must cover the knowledge of established facts, concepts theories etc of the subject material. However much of this can be memorised and regurgitated in an assessment Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

8. Understanding • Students must understand the concepts, and theories, and their underpinning and interrelationships Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

9. Every quadratic equation can be reduced to the form: ax2+bx +c = 0 • And can be solved by applying the following formula • x = - b + or – V b2 - 4ac • 2a • A student can therefore remember the formula and solve any quadratic equation by applying it, without the faintest idea of the theoretical underpinning of the formula and what are the full implications of the solution. Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

10. Intellectual Skills • Students must have the ability to apply appropriate mathematical and scientific principles to the analysis of problems and to synthesize a successful solution. • The possession of this ability depends on the thorough understanding of the underpinning principles at each stage or year of the programme. Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

11. Practical Skills • In science and engineering these skills include those developed through laboratory work, drawing and design and the application of computer software Equivalent skills are needed in non-laboratory subjects, including literary searches and analysis, foreign language proficiency etc. Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

12. Professional Skills • These are skills which a graduate will have to demonstrate, if he/she is to function properly in his/her chosen profession. These are the practical skills associated with the given profession. In medicine and associated subjects, diagnosis and treatment are essential. In engineering, producing adequate designs and working in groups or teams are essential. In languages, accurate interpretation is necessary and so on. Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

13. General and Transferable Skills • These include the range of skills, which every graduate can be expected to possess. These include literacy, numeracy, computer literacy, information retrieval, inter-personal skills, team working and the English language, necessary in the modern world of web-sites and paper publications. Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

14. Yesterday you established the attributes that graduates in you subject area should possess by the end of their final year at university or after a properly designated intern period. Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

15. So now you should be able to construct a curriculum in Learning Outcome form to produce a programme which will facilitate and ensure the achievement of the attributes by its graduates Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission

16. Remember 1. If an ILO is included in a module or in the programme as a whole the Faculty must have the resources to enable the students to achieve that outcome. 2. If an ILO is considered to be necessary for a module or a programme, there must be a way of assessing the students achievement of it. So inclusion of an ILO must be accompanied by a statement on how the achievement that outcome will be assessed Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission
