INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS
The AgLTAS Project involves the definition of threshold (core, or minimum) learning outcomes for degrees in the Agriculture discipline in higher education. Learning outcomes are clear statements of what a graduate is expected to know, understand and be able to do as a result of learning (Australian Qualifications Framework). Threshold learning outcomes (TLOs) are those that all recent graduates of the Agriculture discipline are expected to demonstrate.
The Learning and Teaching Academic Standards Statement for Agriculture V1 was developed from the collated feedback from academic, industry and student stakeholders and an online survey.
This survey is divided into four sections that aim to:
1. Gather demographics
2. Gather quantitative evidence on the extent of sectoral agreement on the statement on the nature and extent of the agriculture discipline
3. Gather qualitative feedback on individual TLOs
4. Establish general perceptions on whether current Australian Agriculture (and associated sub-discipline) degree programs will allow ALL graduates to meet these nationally-agreed TLOs
All questions are optional: the survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete. By submitting this survey you are consenting to participate in the project and contribute anonymous data that may be published. All responses will be treated in confidence, and will be downloaded from the secure Survey Monkey server in the US to password-protected network storage on the University of Tasmania network, where it will be retained securely for five years in line with relevant policy. The original Survey Monkey data will be deleted one week after close of the survey.
