This subject introduces students to the physical, socio-emotional and intellectual development of adolescents. Students explore how these major domains interact with each other and their context to influence adolescent development and learning. Major theories of development (cognitive, constructivist, behavioural and ecological) will be examined and applied to educational contexts. Contemporary research is applied in considering issues relating to adolescent physical, emotional, social and identity development. In addition, students explore factors related to academic achievement in secondary school, including high incidence disorders of adolescence. In each area of study, the implications for pedagogical practice across developmental stages for classroom teaching and learning are considered. Implications for learning, especially the use of evidence-based learning strategies, are emphasised.
