Human Development and Learning ESH104

Launceston, Cradle Coast


This unit can be taken as an elective in Education courses. It is not available as an elective in some other courses. Please check with your Faculty prior to enrolling in this unit.


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
