Course Description

This course introduces students to the development of social policy in Canada with a particular focus on the care and education of young children. The roles of federal, provincial and municipal governments, advocacy, social movements, as well as the sociopolitical and economic context are explored in reference to policy successes/failures. This course challenges students to connect their micro-level experiences as students of early childhood studies to the broader macro social and political context of which they are a part.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
