EDU 101 Introduction to Student Development
The course covers “child and adolescent development through a pedagogical perspective.” Students will be introduced to the task of field-based inquiry, collecting their observations and insights, and studying developmental concepts (including the notion of “development”). Students will compose an autobiography of themselves as an example of writing narrative inquiry. The technology thread required includes use of the computer to create word documents, manage electronic files, and use Moodle effectively. The field component is 24 hours at K-12 schools, and 12 hours in an informal setting.
Level: Freshmen and sophomores. This course is offered in the fall and spring semesters.
