Subject Description

Structured around an overview of lifespan development including diversity, this subject looks into the holistic nature of growth and development through developmental theory and research. We will highlight the interactive nature of three main areas of development: biological, cognitive, and psychosocial changes that affect the individual from conception to end of life. We will integrate an understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander development into the subject alongside an appreciation of richness in diversity within various cultural contexts.
