CIED 2120 Child Development and Learning


This course explores child development and learning in physical, cognitive, linguistic, social, moral and emotional domains from birth through adolescence, and the application of knowledge of child development in educational settings spanning preschool through high school.  In addition to exploring issues central to developmental theories and principles, the role of children’s context and culture, as well as research on child development will be examined. Within the course embedded P-12 school field experience, students will have opportunities to observe children, understand their development and learning, and analyze classroom practices and children’s behavior through the lenses of a range of psychological theories.  The course employs a combination of readings, concept elucidating activities, observations, virtual and field based case study analyses, mini-research projects, and self-examination.
