History Information:

GOALS:
1. That students will gain basic knowledge of the science of developmental psychology across the lifespan from the prenatal period until the end of life, as well as the processes of human development.  In addition, we will consider liberal-arts questions that arise from the study of lifespan developmental psychology.
2. That students will understand how knowledge is acquired through scientific inquiry within the field of lifespan developmental psychology, and, consequently, be better evaluators of information both generally and with respect to developmental psychology.
3. That students will deepen their interest in lifespan developmental psychology and increase their motivation to learn more about the area.
4.  That students will prepare for careers and other roles that relate to people at all ages across the lifespan, as well as its ending.
5.  That students will prepare for independent, lifelong learning about issues that relate to lifespan developmental psychology.
6.  That students will partner with me to create an inclusive classroom where mutual respect will flourish.

ASSESSMENT:
Examinations, discussions, and short papers, Web pages, or projects

Assessment
and Goals:

<no text provided>

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

MY PSYCHOLOGY COLLEAGUES AND THE STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE BELIEVE THAT AN ABBREVIATED VERSION OF THE UPPER-DIVISION DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY SEQUENCE WILL SERVE THE PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR AND MINOR STUDENTS WHO WANT A LIFESPAN-WIDE COVERAGE OF DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY, BUT WITHOUT THE DEPTH.  THIS COURSE WILL ALSO SERVE ANY PRE-PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS WHO NEED A COURSE IN LIFESPAN DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY, AND WHO WOULD BE SERVED BY ONLY HAVING TO TAKE ONE COURSE TO MEET THE REQUIREMENT, INSTEAD OF TWO OR THREE.
