Unit Code: ES102B

Unit Title: Human Development

This unit is important for all teachers in the early childhood education, primary and secondary sectors in the Solomon Islands education system. It will assist student teachers to show an understanding of the way children grow and develop and some of the influences on their development. It will also help them to reflect on and consider their own development, and be able to relate to children, students and their families. Student teachers will further be encouraged to explain and critique a range of theories and their relevance for the Solomon Islands context, and be able to apply their knowledge of how children learn to their professional practices.
