Developmental Psychology brings together a balanced focus on Australian and international research contributions in developmental psychology. This text addresses the issues of lifespan development in a rigorous and challenging way using a thematic approach.
Research and graduate attributes identify critical thinking as a key attribute for students. This text encourages students to think critically and engage with current research trends. The inclusion of critical thinking components is designed to encourage students to think more deeply about the topics.
This interactive simulation offers students the opportunity to act as a parent and raise a virtual child. By making decisions about specific scenarios, students raise their child from birth to age 18 and see how their own decisions and parenting actions affect their child over time. At each age, students are given feedback about the various milestones their child has attained. As in real life, certain "unplanned" events may randomly be presented for students. Key stages of the child's development will include personalized feedback.
