30 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: The global contexts in which young children live and learn afford diverse challenges and opportunities for early childhood education. This module focuses on a range of topics which are 'of the moment', and thus pertinent to contemporary debates and practice. Students will critically evaluate current global issues as well as topics which are relevant to specific social, cultural and geographical contexts. Module content will draw upon pioneering research within the School of Education and beyond, and will enable students to make an informed contribution to developments in early childhood education.

Restrictions on availability: Students must usually have a minimum of two years of professional experience relevant to the field of early childhood education.
