This Unit will give you a detailed insight Human development within an education paradigm wherein we will specially explore the following core ideas:
- Human psychology exists within chronological age (e.g. critical points and/or stages /transitions),
- Human development is a process of recognising/articulating and quantifying change/growth (social, emotional, physical and cognitive) across lifespan,
- Human development is an interplay between idiosyncrasies, bio-behavioural aspects, environmental forces and socio-cultural influences, and
- Human development can be best understood (from infancy to adulthood) within an educational context through a topical approach
