This online course is designed to examine adolescent development, from both the theoretical and practical perspectives. Various theories of learning and human development will be explored, in relation to adolescents (i.e. youth aged twelve and older). The cognitive, social, emotional, physical, moral, and motivational domains will be examined in order to provide a comprehensive, integrative approach to working with adolescents in secondary schools. Course participants will also examine various models for secondary education that are consistent with 21st century teaching and learning. Through research-based readings, case studies, conceptual designs, discussions, and theoretical analyses, course participants will develop a thorough understanding of the developmental processes that affect the decisions, behaviors, and learning outcomes of adolescents. In turn, participants will be better positioned to positively impact the learning, development, and achievement of secondary school students.
