Drawing on rigorous theory and research, this subject provides an overview of typical and atypical development from birth to adolescence across the physical, cognitive, social and emotional domains. A broad range of influences on development and learning will be examined. This subject will include major theoretical perspectives on learning, such as behaviourism, humanism, cognitivism and constructivism. It will also focus on learning and teaching strategies that support the full participation of all students in order to maximise development and learning outcomes.
