This new course examines adult development from the perspective of life-span theory — a conceptual framework that views development as a series of adaptations to physical, societal and individual resources and constraints. Students will learn about demographic and medical changes, ways that individuals typically change socially, emotionally and cognitively as they move through adulthood. Students also gain an understanding of the conceptual foundations of the life-span approach and place aging of young people today in historical context.
As part of the course, each student will moderate their own blog.
