Botwright Acuna, T and Able, AJ, Good practice guide: Threshold learning outcomes for agriculture, Proceedings of the 2016 Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education (ACSME), 28-30 September 2016, University of Queensland, pp. 9-10. ISBN 978-0-9871834-5-3 (2016) [Conference Extract]
The Good Practice Guide: Threshold Learning Outcomes for Agriculture (the Good Practice Guide) builds on the national Learning and Teaching Academic Standards Statement for Agriculture (AgLTAS), which was developed through an extensive consultation process among academics, students and industry personnel across Australia.
The AgLTAS facilitates the implementation of academic standards by the agriculture discipline community and informs curriculum design. It describes the nature and extent of agriculture and provides five key Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs) that describe what a pass-level graduate will know, understand and be able to do upon graduation from a bachelor-level degree in agriculture or a related discipline. The TLOs are: Understanding agriculture; Knowledge of agriculture; Inquiry and problem-solving; Communication; and Personal and professional responsibility (Botwright Acuņa et al. 2014).
