Early Childhood Development Research and Practice - ECED724

This unit is designed to extend students' understanding of child development with a particular emphasis on approaches to understanding and measuring child development, considerations for quality in early childhood education and implications for early childhood policy and practice. Recent research studies of child development especially in relation to prior-to-school settings will be used as a major resource for examining contemporary theory and research in child development. Students will analyse research to develop their skills in using evidence-based approaches to inform policy and practice related to working with young children and families.
