This course uses a problem-based, student centered approach to the
development of infants and children. The goals of the course are to
promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills using reading,
data, video, and group projects on issues in perceptual, motor,
social, and cognitive development. There is a problem-based
assignment due for every class, but no conventional examinations.
Students will understand developmental processes through critical
reading of research reports and popular press, evaluating conflicting
data, interpreting data, and generating testable hypotheses.
