Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The primary focus of this module is on face to face teaching. Tutorials will be interactive and include problem-solving activities (LO 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5). Material introduced to the students will be looked at in further detail in the tutorials. You will be introduced to the literature week by week which will enable your understanding of the theories and concepts relevant to Child Development.

Formative Assessment:
Preparation for the class test will allow students to demonstrate their knowledge of developmental theories and the processes involved in development (LO 1+2). Weekly practice questions will be available prior to the class test. Learning outcomes and suggested further reading will be available for each topic on the module so that the students can revise effectively for the exam. In addition, tutorial support will be offered to you in order to prepare you for the exams.

Summative Assessment:
The knowledge gained for the [50 minute] class test will be further enhanced by analysing and evaluating current research which is required for the final exam (LO 1, 2,3,4 & 5).
