The Threshold Learning Outcomes for Science (Science TLOs) are a landmark in science curriculum in Australian higher education and are endorsed by the ACDS.
For the first time, science faculties have nationally agreed descriptions of what a science graduate should know and be able to do. The Science TLOs set the framework for development of learning objectives for individual science degrees, which cascades to individual subjects. The Science TLOs inform curriculum design and are a national reference point for learning in Science and Mathematical sciences.
The Science TLOs have stimulated translation into science sub-disciplines and projects on implementing them within Australian science degrees.
