EDU 530 Child Development: Understanding and Supporting the Whole Child (Pre-Birth through 8 Years)

3 credits

Child Development and Cognition is one of a series of two courses designed to investigate the theory and experience of children in the perceptual, motor, cognitive, social, psychological, and moral domains of development. This course specifically addresses these constructs from prenatal to nine years of age. Additionally, the application of the principles and theories of child development and learning in order to promote responsive instruction, curriculum, collaboration, and assessment in the classroom is studied. Students also examine early screening and assessment tools that are currently utilized in the field; for example, OUNCE, ASQ-3, and Work Sampling. A practicum, which consists of 12 hours per semester of field experience, is a required component of this course. Through this practicum, students learn observation, assessment, and record keeping skills.
