Development and Learning through Life introduces students to theoretical perspectives on human development and learning that acknowledge the significance of the diversity of children, their social and cultural contexts and the systems of relationships that influence their development. Students develop knowledge and understanding of the complex interactions between physical, social, emotional, linguistic and intellectual aspects of development and reflect on that knowledge to interpret the impact of social and cultural contexts on learning, engagement, and the educational pathways and outcomes of students with diverse socioeconomic, linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Theoretical perspectives are applied to challenge notions of universal and predictable pathways of learning and draw implications for the importance of connectedness, positive learning environments and experiences, quality care and responsive education provision in the early years and in school settings.
