Develop Your Life: A Human Development and Human-Centered Design Approach
This course combines developmental psychology, human development, and human-centered design with a focus on the developing student. Students examine their past development, understand themselves in the present, and consider a plan for future career and life, leveraging their past and present. Students learn others are both like themselves and very different. Varied life experiences, family background, cultural influences, education -- all make us unique. Beyond theoretical and substantive knowledge, this course helps students to understand influences and consequences of diversity, gain empathy and appreciation for others, and maximize their own journey.
