Children and adolescents spend a significant amount of time each day in the company of peers. Together with their peers, children acquire a wide range of skills, attitudes and experiences that influence their cognitive, emotional, and social development. Peers are also powerful socialization agents, contributing well beyond the collective influences of family, school, and neighbourhood.
The Peer Relations and Interactions in Childhood and Adolescence program at the Radboud University will include lectures as well as a variety of individual and small group assignments, including:
- working with state of the art research methods and paradigms
- (first steps in) data analyses
- observations of peer interactions
- critically reviewing literature
- ethical considerations
- brainstorming about new research designs
