Good Practice Example from the Msc in International Management:

Articulate the ethical dimensions of international management in both the public and private sectors of society and apply this knowledge effectively in international management and research contexts tick

This uses both a suitable action word and is couched in broad and generic term so that is does not create any unnecessary barriers to learning for any student.

 

However, this outcome would not gain approval from College IF it had been phrased:

Be aware of the ethical dimensions of international management in both the public and private sectors of society and apply this knowledge effectively in international management and research contexts red x

This lacks a suitable action word. How does one demonstrate and measure 'awareness of''?

Or

Orally present on the ethical dimensions of international management in both the public and private sectors of society and apply this knowledge effectively in international management and research contexts red x

This is unnecessarily restrictive as it is written in a way that necessitates the ability of orally present. This, for example, could exclude students with speech impairments and is neither a useful learning outcome nor is it inclusive.
