The study of age-related cognitive, social and emotional behavior focusing on theories of development during infancy and childhood. Students learn how social factors—such as one’s family, socioeconomic status, and culture—impact upon human development, and the current state of affairs in America for factors (e.g., divorce, child care, single-parenting) that impact child development. The focus of the course is on human development within the American culture, but both book and lecture materials will also present cross-cultural comparisons. This course provides a foundation for other courses within the psychology department, such as child psychopathology, cross-cultural psychology, and the exceptional child.
Would be a wonderful class if you could hear the instructor as well as you can hear every other sound in the classroom. Sounds like the mic is next to a kid with the sniffles and an obsession with zippers.
Was the teacher cognizant of a recording device?
Terrible recording quality. The mp3 files often end mid-sentence or have four minutes of dead air after the lecture ends.
Was there useful information in here? Yes, butt you're better off getting it from some other source.
