    Abstract

    This project mapped the newly developed graduate qualities into the core
    topics of an undergraduate Bachelor of Health Science program. In order to
    depict these qualities a constructive alignment process was used to ascertain
    the scaffolding of skills and learning that is developed across the core topics.
    This was undertaken to ensure that the integrity of the learning outcomes,
    curriculum and assessment methods were being delivered before establishing
    the presence of graduate qualities. This process provided an opportunity to
    determine the incremental skill and knowledge development, both within the
    core topics, as well as between topics over the program.
