Course Title: Hydroelectric power
Level: 6   Credit: 15
A.  Purpose Statement:
The purpose of this course is to enable me to:  Hydroelectric power: Fundamental and main principles.   (Continue the statement to describe what it is you want to be able to do after completing this course, in no more than three short sentences)
B.   Learning Outcomes:
I will be able to provide evidence that I can: Start each learning outcome with a verb
1.    List the technology that used to harness hydroelectric power.
2.    Discuss the positive and negative aspects of hydroelectric power.
3.    Explain the principles that cause the ability of hydroelectric power to deliver useable energy.
4.    Illustrate the usability of hydroelectric power.
C.   Course Content:
During this course I will be studying the following areas of interest:
§  Technology of the hydroelectric power.
§  Advantages and disadvantages of the hydroelectric power.
§  Ability principle of the hydroelectric power.

§  Hydroelectric power usability.

D.        Resources required:

E.   Capabilities:

I believe that I will be developing the following Bachelor of Applied Technology Capabilities: (Tick the appropriate capabilities P )




problem-management / research  


critical thinking  


working collaboratively  


managing project  


reflection on practice  


self-employment and entrepreneurship   innovation  


Maori dimensions  
I believe that this course will help me develop these capabilities because: (Provide details of your reasoning)

Reflection on practice:

Reflection on practical discover the way of learning hydroelectric power. Also, indicate the difficulties and easiness of the hydroelectric power. What is more, solving the problems that will be occurred./


Critical thinking:

In this report, critical thinking concept will be taking into consideration. Think critically about hydroelectric power will help researcher in its field to focus on area that could be improvements. Therefore, critical thinking is the only way of improvement.


Problem-management / research:

This part will illustrate the needs and interest of the topic and how these will be covered.


Communication: Ask expert.



This part will shows the comparison between the old and new technology of hydroelectric power and how its developed.
