Course Description

Examine the world of children from 0 to 5 years. Explore how they develop and learn in this critical stage. You will discover the world of children in the early years. Though child development patterns are reasonably universal, every child is unique, has individual potential and will learn differently from their peers. By exploring many aspects of child development and learning you will gain insight into how to support infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers during this critical stage of life. #### What will I learn? * The stages of child development from birth to five years and some important milestones * The different domains in which children develop, and how care givers can support the development in each domain * Laws and regulations that guide the care and education of children in Australia and internationally * The belonging, being and becoming framework for understanding children’s developmental needs...

The course is extremely easy. You could answer all the questions correctly without even watching the videos - that obvious they were. I've not learned anything from this course - just a waste of time.

I felt like too little non-obvious information was presented. I'm also not a big fan of courses that only expect you to spend 12 hours on them, but for a counterpoint, the 10 hour course from Coursera/University of Virginia - Effective Classroom Interactions: Supporting Young Children's Development imparted far more information of value. I think this course tries to cover everything about early childhood superficially rather than being much more focused like the University of Virginia MOOC. VERY easy class (30 -60 minutes per week). The tests are absurdly easy. Common sense, particularly if you've ever had a child or spent significant time around a child will enable you to answer most questions without watching any videos. You will learn nothing earth-shaking and I fear that really advanced educators (the instructors are not professors) in the field of early education may say things at times radically different from the mostly conven...

Also, this class (and I presume most class) comes from almost entirely an Australian perspective, so if that varies greatly with your background, consider the difference between science and culture when evaluating the usefulness of something said in the course. I suppose this course still has some value, given the short time commitment.
