Child and Adolescent Development and Characteristics (EDBED1017)

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.
