Human Development in Context - EDPE5002

Year - 2018

A core unit of study that critically examines theories from developmental sciences in the light of contemporary theory and research, drawing especially on insights provided by Dynamic Systems Theory and neurobiology of the brain development. The aim is to understand the complexity of cognitive, emotional, social, moral and languate development as children engage with the multiplicities of their experience of being in the world. Seminars also focus on how to design and conduct developmental research, and how to read research findings with critical minds.
