General Information

Overview

Human activity and development impact the natural environment. To what extent then, can the associated issues be reviewed and mitigated? The answers to such questions are often evaluated in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA). In this unit, you will become familiar with the enabling concepts behind EIAs. You will evaluate an industry Environmental Impact Study by assessing current practice in the field.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Student feedback.

Feedback

Some 15% of student feedback responses sought the return of formal lectures and tutorials to the learning content. Some of the suggestions concern the amount of textbased learning material – and some concerns the visibility of the lecturer to students.

Recommendation

The student feedback suggests that environmental legislation learning material can be dry – the unit-lead will create more audiovisual-enhanced learning material for students who prefer an audio-based learning mechanism. While generally, tertiary sector education is moving away from formal lectures, the unit-lead will create more short guiding videos in the learning material.

Feedback from Student feedback.

Feedback

Student feedback suggests that assessment submission timing needs fine-tuning to allow more time to complete assignments.

Recommendation

The unit lead will rearrange assessment submission timing to allow more time to complete the assignments. The reduction of unit assessments from four to three items will allow extra time for assignment completion.
