LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Let us acknowledge that Queen’s is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory. We are grateful to be able to live, learn and play on these lands. To acknowledge this traditional territory is to recognize its longer history, one predating the establishment of the earliest European colonies. It is also to acknowledge this territory’s signi±cance for the Indigenous Peoples who lived, and continue to live, upon it and whose practices and spiritualities were tied to the land and continue to develop in relationship to the territory and its other inhabitants today. To read more about the history of the land, see the Queen's Encyclopedia at . COURSE DESCRIPTION Course Instructor Dr. Michele Morningstar E-mail: [email protected] Course Description This course is designed to be an introduction to the scienti±c study of human development, with an emphasis on social, cognitive, and neurobiological processes underlying perceptual, cognitive, and emotional development from infancy to adolescence. What this course will look like: You will notice that this course follows a modular structure in which you will ±nd each week of the course. Each week is complete with readings, interactive course notes, videos, non-graded self-check activities, and assessments. Together, these instructional materials will help you work through key concepts and provide you with ample opportunity to re±ne your skills. At the top of each week, you will ±nd the learning outcomes and all supporting content listed below. You must complete all required tasks for each week. Textbook Material : Reading the textbook is very important for you to obtain the foundational knowledge that is required for the course and is critical for all assessment components. Please note that you are only responsible for the page numbers listed; other material will not be assessed, although you can certainly read it for interest, or use it in your essays. Interactive Course Notes : The interactive course notes are designed to cover the dif±cult and important topics for the week, and extend upon the current week’s material. This extension will consist of discussing other research ±ndings related to the topic (i.e., research not covered in the textbook), as well as discuss the applicability of the material to society as a whole. All content contained in the interactive lesson notes, including the videos, is required for the course and is critical for all assessment components.
