Contemporary Approaches to Infant and Toddler Theory and Practice - ECED732

The recognition of the importance of children's first three years of life has led to an increasing awareness of the specialist nature of infant-toddler educational and care services. This unit allows students to develop advanced knowledge about the evidence base and contemporary perspectives that inform infant-toddler early education programs. Students will deepen their understanding of children's learning and development through a critical analysis of relevant research-based and pedagogical literature. As this unit is designed for students who are interested in higher degree research, students will also critically appraise the methodological approaches that have been used by researchers to address a chosen topic pertinent to infant-toddler education and will derive implications for future research in their area of interest.
