Through this unit of study, students will explore contemporary theories of social and cognitive development and their implications for children's formal and informal learning. Alternative explanations of developmental processes will be discussed drawing upon research evidence and students own observations from a range of settings. Students will reflect on the impact of the social and cultural contexts of development and learning and interrogate the cultural assumptions of developmental models. From a sharing of these individual enquiries, the group will reflect on the implications of their findings for the experiences and opportunities provided for young children.
