Special Interest Early Childhood 1 (EDMT5124)


Early childhood professionals act in various capacities in a range of settings. They have an obligation to promote and support respectful relationships with children, families, other staff and a range of service and community professionals and to understand the processes around which professional evidence bases are built. This unit enables students to begin to explore the concept of professionally focused research and to build their understanding of an area of professional interest and possible future professional research through a review of literature.
