Subject objectives - samples name the major classes of diuretics and explain their mechanism of action define the terms agonist, antagonist, efficacy and potency be able to use some current methods of social research be able to apply understandings derived from the preceding task to broader contexts in regard to the enhancement of student learning via school/educational leadership, as well as to the students and their schools' own leadership for learning practices be able to express ideas and communicate with others using information communication technologies (ICT); Explain how critical issues are currently being addressed coherently through catchment management, capacity building and social justice processes and critically appraise the ability of these approaches to enhance outcomes at the landscape scale.
Cognitive domains covered in objectives Knowledge - involving straight recognition or recall Comprehension - where relationships between pieces of information are recognised; where the context of knowledge can be described Application - where knowledge can be used in a new setting; the emphasis here is on the use of knowledge and not just the recognition of its context Analysis - where a complex problems can be broken down into components which can be worked on Synthesis - involving the creation of a final product (a product design, a research plan etc.) Evaluation - where judgments about appropriateness and quality are involved Bloom’s taxonomy
