This course will provide the opportunity to explore significant aspects of physical, social, psychological and intellectual development and characteristics of children and young people. It considers the social, historical, global and cultural contexts within which children and young people live, and the possible implications for their learning and their world more broadly. Students will inquire into theoretical perspectives and apply contemporary knowledge of those perspectives to strategies for teaching and learning which support inclusive participation, engagement and well-being. Children and young people are presented and positioned as active agents within the contexts of teaching and learning.
* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
