This Unit will give you a detailed insight into human development and learning within an education paradigm wherein we will specifically explore the following core ideas:
- Human psychology exists within chronological age (e.g. critical points and/or stages/transitions), and
- Human development is a process of recognising/articulating and quantifying change/growth (social, emotional, physical and cognitive) across lifespan, and
- 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
- Appreciating and understanding learning theories across the lifespan.
